Watch Me!

Oh yeah, this is the job I want! Spotting competitors at the start of the Ice Climbing World Cup's final route in Hemsedal, Norway. Watch out for those heel spurs, man! (Photo by Dag Hagen, courtesy of www.norsk-klatring.no.) And they say volunteers are hard to find at competitions...

Just when you think you've seen it all. Maybe I can get a job at Ouray next year...

I think spotting in this situation is ridiculous when you weigh the odds and severity of injuring the spotter vs. the climber. I mean, the climber's clipped & on TR. Yes, he could deck but he could also swing around and pick out an eyeball.
