There must be an easier way to get fondled
Every autumn, the McGill Outdoors Club (it used to be the Outing Club, but political correctness deemed the wording discriminatory) holds an introduction to rock climbing weekend. Basically, a few folks who have climbed a bit take out complete newbies to a crag and show them how to put on a harness and how to tie into the rope. The participants have absolutely no idea if what they're being shown is correct or not.
No instructors are certified, though they make this fact clear. However, you have to wonder what one of the "instructors" was thinking when he did this. Oh, there are so many things wrong with this that I don't even know where to start.
Edit: Strangely enough, the video has been removed from the server, so you can't view it anymore.
