Boogie 'til you puke/poop

Boogie 'til you puke: Mountain Climber Jason Kruk got his knee stuck in a 5.11 offwidth called "Boogie 'til You Puke," and required a rescue. Luckily, it was caught on video.

The videographer's blog has a lot of wonderful videos.

Offwidth: an offwidth is a crack which is basically an annoying width, but Annoywidth doesn't sound as good. An offwidth is too wide for a hand jam or a fist and too narrow to chimney, so usually requires a combination of wedging, squeezing, chicken winging and all other means necessary.

Every time I fast forwarded, someone was either saying "shit (your/my) pants" or wretching.

Worth sticking around for his post-climb comments, which were hilarious.

He could have at least used his trucker hat.

They were all such good sports about it.

And that is why I avoid offwidths at all costs. They make you shit your pants.

On the one hand, he's made it a lot farther up a 5.11, while hungover, than I've ever made it while sober. So he's got that going for him.

On the other hand, of course, I've always gone home with clean underwear.

He's a better sport about it than I would have been.

Ha, sent that off to a friend of mine who used to do a lot of climbing. Can't wait to hear back from him.

The lesson here is to take the necessary measures to ensure that you've properly unloaded before scaling a wall of rock.

So is it now downrated to a 5.#2?

Before climbing a route, one is often given some warning about the 'crux' move -- now you're going to have to make sure they're not talking about a 'Kruk's.'

"Don't puke my pants, dude"?

It seems to me the lesson is to avoid mixing alcohol with dangerous activities.

"Don't puke my pants, dude"?

It all started to run together after a minute or so.

I loved how hard the guy below him was laughing when he started to dry-heave. Cause that guy is the one who's going to get puked on. You know someone's having a pretty good time when they're laughing as someone is about to puke on them.

Not being a climber, I couldn't figure out the technique, but widefetish helped.

I was very confused as to why he was almost puking. Shitting his pants could be due to intense strain trying to free his knee, but puking? Then I remembered, "oh yeah, hangover..."

I *ahem* smell a new verb.

To kruk: to unload in one's pants during strenuous physical activity.

As in: Dude, I just krukked myself.

That made me laugh a lot more than it should have.

I think he was just scared. Fear can cause nausea. And given the fact that he was so scared that he actually shit himself... which is hilarious... I'm thinking that's a decent explanation.

It says in the link that he was hungover. He crapped his pants because he was in an intensely difficult posture that caused quite a bit of leg muscle strain and pressure on his lower abdomen. He probably tried valiantly to hold it it, but the position he was in most likely was conducive to causing the bowels to move--it wasn't really a product of primal fear or anything.

Well, he certainly needs to work on his wide-crack technique.

I laughed so hard I... no, I won't go there.
