Our Dirty Climbing Stories

This is hilarious and made me laugh out loud. Sometimes poop is just funny.

Now that I think about it, many of my proudest climbs have a poop subplot. One of my big breaks into becoming a pro climber came when I starred in Sender Films’ “First Ascent.” In the climactic scene, I manage to thrash my way up a burly unclimbed roof crack. What most people don’t know is that while racking up, I gambled and lost, trusting a fart that I shouldn’t have.

“Dudely, you just shit your pants; that’s no joke,” my partner, the legendary Bulgarian Ivo Ninov, exclaimed. Undeterred, I scooped the shart out of my pants with a rock and then fired the route. Watch the film again; you can just see a faint silver dollar–sized stain on my pants in a couple of the scenes.
