    omg, Vorn, I don't have a fear of heights and I still get scared shitless when I'm rock climbing. Granted, when you're on top rope, at least for me, it goes away to a good degree once I fall a few times and realize how well the rope and my belayer have me anchored, but I still get nerves and shaky hands on my way up.

    Just make sure you always have a good belayer. I went on a women's rock climbing trip once and when I looked down my belayer was distracted and looking at some of the other girls having a conversation, and she didn't hear me when I started asking her to take in the rope a bit because I wanted it more taut. Fucking seriously?

    @Argos:

    Yeah, Adventure Girl took once an almost five meter plunge when leading when her belayer was chatting with others :P

    @Argos & Vornaskotti: Every time I get back into rock climbing, the fear of heights is fairly intense, especially when it comes to rappelling back down. Or I get stuck in a touch spot. And yeah, when I climb, I want the rope extra taut for that reason.

    My man makes me blush sometimes. Hard to tell in that picture, due to my pastiness, but trust me.

    I think I'm broken now or something.

    Hah Dextra, the look says it all :)

    Me, I got a lizard! I spent a bloody ton of time as a kid catching these and following the lifespan of a colony of these lizards and individual animals when I was in single digits and a pre-teen. It's been quite a few years from the previous catch, but caught this fellow on our climbing trip today. Twice, actually, since he just stayed on to derp where I let him go to handle some rope stuff.

    @Vorn I am terrified of heights... I tend to stick to indoor bouldering! I'm a wuss.
    @Dextra You are adorable.

    It's not really a SPIT, but it IS awesome, so I figured I would post it here. My older brother, friend, and I went to Ottawa Comic Con as Spider, Yelena, and Channon:

    Filthy Assistants!

    My sister asked me to take a photo of her and her kids. So I took a selfie first.
