Screaming and Climbing

Last night at The Castle, I was once again subjected to MOCKERY for the noises I make whilst climbing hard.*

Well, it turns out that SCIENCE is on my side. As are Chris Sharma and Adam Ondra.

You’re Welcome.

*sent that 7a though, didn’t I?

The mockers are just jealous. Scream yourself fabulous.

Unfortunately, unlike watching screaming tennis players on TV, you can’t just turn down the volume level at a wall (or outside). So mockery is all that’s left, short of bringing rotten tomatoes to throw…

David, if you can’t beat ‘em, join ‘em. Perhaps you could help me out, perhaps by shouting suitable encouragement in the form of words like “venga!” and “allez!”

I hear this is how it is done at the trad crags.

It doesn’t matter what you do Sagar, I’m gonna mock you for it.

Still, well sent/posted/dispatched/crushed/squished

Chris Sharma and Adam Ondra are foreign. Joe Brown might grunt, Don Whillans swear and Dave Macleod do some focussed breathing, but screaming?
