Excuses for Why You Didn't Send

A humorous blog post I put together about excuses (many made by me!) that are made when we fail at climbing endeavors that should seem relatively easy or have already completed with ease.  If you have any more that aren't on the list feel free to leave them in a reply, I may need to use that excuse next time I fail!

I like it

Here are my favorites:

"This climb was too reachy/crimpy/slopey/juggy/chossy/sandbagged/etc"

"I was just training my belayer"

Always good to bring a good whiskey out to the crag! Kind of like a night cap for the day!
