Personality Quiz: Crag Snack

In rock climbing, a crag snack can be just as crucial as gear. When a climber doesn’t have the right energy, physical and/or emotional, their climb can be a disaster. Maybe that means they don’t get the send, or maybe that means they slip and take a massive whipper. Sure, maybe bad things happen with the right crag snack, but why tempt fate?

  1. 1.3 ~ 2.4 ~ 3.4 ~ 4.1&4 ~ 5.1&5 Thing is, life is so unpredictable. Some days there’s order and calm, then other days chaos! I mean, climbing is a representation of that, right? Anyways, I recall having nothing to eat but a Nākd bar from a vending machine, before going in to attend two C sections. So, let us just say, probably put me down for the Bum snacks off of others. 🍫

  2. Wheat Thins is spot on but only with Roasted Capsicum dip, brie, blue cheese and some nice shaved deli meat. That’s the usual for climbing day trips. Multiday or multipitch is just scroggin with extra m&m’s

      1. I would reduce the grades I’m climbing to increase the feast I could bring. A different course at the anchor for each pitch with dessert at when we finally top out.
