Are You a Gradist Wanker?
Gradist wanker: A tool or a complete dick who takes sadistic delight in passing judgment on others and the grade at which they climb.
How to tell if you are a gradist wanker?
- You remember the grades but not the names of routes
- You judge people as a whole by what grade they climb
- You belittle other climbers e.g. 'That's such a girly problem', 'How can you do ____ but can't do ____? It's an easier grade.', 'Did they seriously spend that long on that route?'
- You socialise with other gradist wankers who bitch about other climbers' abilities
- You get shitty at yourself when you can't climb a problem that is within your 'grade range'.
- You get shitty at others when they can't climb a route that 'they should be able to do'.
Don't be that guy.
