comment Rock Climbing falling.Turning upside down
Yeah - I had my kids in them from 18 months. Mostly so they couldn't get out, rather than worrying about being upside-down

While I enjoyed this, I'm not sure you've quite followed the OP's requirements :-)

comment What is the best mountaineering quote that you have ever read?
romkyns - there was precedence from other sites, and of course you can see it did get quite a bit of interest from community members here. Mods have not made an exception in terms of allowing it to remain open - we let the community decide that (and as you can see it is now closed) - all we did was hold off on rapid closing, as requested by the community. You can see from the comments above, and chat, that the mods weren't really in favour of the question!

comment When should you use gear to climb a tree?
I'd have to agree with nivag here - I don't get the drinking aspect. Also, as a keen climber who suffers from a major fear of heights, I always overcome my fear! It's difficult, but I need to if I want to successfully climb. It reminds me to always place anchors carefully, only move one limb at a time etc.
