Whippers & Phrases

We have all been there.

Clinging to the rock, keeping a cool head working through the crux of the route.  Before you can register what just happened the air is shooting up past you and that sensation of floating overtakes you. The crux you were just working is nothing but a sudden distant memory as your arms flail while screaming your favorite choice word that comes to mind.

With that being said depending on the size of the whipper and amount of slack your loving belayer has- repeaters, whole phrases, or that bearded friend suddenly hitting soprano can make for a great memory!

What is the funniest thing you ever said or heard someone say while taking a whipper?
