*How* did you want us to climb that again...?


OK, so we are supposed to climb...crookedly? Yikes!

Slightly scarier than climbing in a not-straight manner: the comma/apostrophe confusion. But since this sign was clearly written by a non-native English speaker, I'm gonna let 'em slide for that error.

Thanks to JAMES for sending in this one!

Ha! After I re-read the post, I was just waiting for someone to say that...and now someone finally did! :)

While the comma is obvious, a climber can tell you that the message makes sense. If it's a steep hill, you "don,t climb straight" or gay, you climb at an angle and zig-zag up the hill.

Just saw that you put up the picture. That was on Mt. Fuji in Japan. Quite an interesting climb. Glad everybody liked it. :D
