Patti after reading The Gospel According to Patti
Re: my disbelief with Patti's route stamina
Patti's commentary when you're stuck on a rock. She frequently tells me that I blast past the harder moves while getting stumped by simple stuff.
Me: Isn't that a Nike slogan?
Patti to me while I was perched somewhere in the middle of What's Next?, a 5.9 route
Patti to me as I was perched on yet another route
Patti to me.
Patti: Ya think? I've been married for almost 30 years and I have three kids that have been to college. You've been climbing with me all this time and don't know that?*
Patti after my commentary on how someone climbed a route.
Patti: “Okay…?" Where’s the sympathy? Where’s the love?
Me: OMG...Are you okay? Are you warm? Would you like for me to bring you coffee, thermal underwear, blankets???
An oldie but goodie. Patti's response after I thanked her for coaching me up a 5.8 when I first started climbing.
