Hello, Dynamite Starfish fam!

What's the worst thing you've said while cruxing? 😫 Did you, a usually compassionate and tender rock climber all of a sudden start cursing your a** off as you held on to that awkward position trying to clip? How about yelling at your partner who was just trying to point out that obviously good hold to you? Maybe you even threatened to call child services on your dad's belay...

Well, whatever your dirty cruxing secrets might be, we've asked the Dynamite Starfish community to share theirs. Keep reading for some guaranteed laughs!

"Stop telling me I'm doing a good job!!! This is f***ing awful!" —@asheleen


Dynamite Starfish Sorry Cruxing Rock Climbing Quote


"I was climbing the second pitch of Valhalla. It leads off sideways from bolted anchors, clips an old bolt, then goes up through hard slab before transitioning to steeper but easier terrain.

I fell a bunch of times. Always at least 10 feet. Always hitting the slab hard. I finally climbed further, basically passing the crux but the run out felt substantial. I had no strength left or head game left.

I called down, Richard, I don’t care if it’s wrong, I want you to take tight!

I was tired of the long falls. Stupid. Richard listened to me and took tight. I fell, tight roped, from overhang to slab and busted my ankle.

It’s still weak. Rolls every year. And creaks when it’s going to rain. I’m sorry for what I said when I was cruxing." —@michaeljustinmoynihan
