AIBU to wonder how the hell she's doing wee wees when she's doing that climbing thing? She even slept on a hanging ledge thingy. I can't get my head around this.

Catheter and leg bag. Obviously.

NorbertDentressangle Thu 20-Mar-14 19:35:43

It's not the weeing that would be a problem (if you get my drift) confused

CMOTDibbler Thu 20-Mar-14 19:40:06

Same as cavers do - wide mouthed bottle for pee, foil and a plastic bag for poo

Well I certainly wouldn't have climbed with my catheter. The pain if it slips from the leg bag. I howled when I dropped the bag in the shower..

She's pprobably just peeing freely in her knickers. Might warm her up I guess.

Just so long as she's not leading and it goes all down the ropes...

You sheepee and pootube when bigwalling. Hth.

So they curl one out onto foil.....? hmm

Is this true?grin. And then wrap it up, and insert into plastic bag ?

<giggles helplessly>. Sort of like turd in the foil <giggles some more>

NorbertDentressangle Thu 20-Mar-14 20:21:27

You wouldn't want to mix that up with your foil-wrapped sandwiches would you?

Orangeanddemons Thu 20-Mar-14 20:52:36

Mmmm foil parcels

I would be shitting constantly if I was up that cliff! It looked terrifying.

I'm now worrying for the poor girl in case she's on her period....

MalcolmTuckersMistress Thu 20-Mar-14 21:34:08

So if they poo in foil do they have to carry it with them the whole time too?

The whole practicality of it makes me worry.

Orangeanddemons Thu 20-Mar-14 21:36:52

Also..what if the poo is...well..less than solid IYKWIM.

How would you make a neat parcel out of that then? And to be fair, as she was in a sort of dangerous position , then there could well have been a viscosity problem couldn't there?

Perhaps she just did what birds do, and stuck her bottom out of the nest as it were. Like a little sparrow!

Nennypops Thu 20-Mar-14 23:07:53

Perhaps she's troughed a load of Immodium so that at least the poo problem won't arise.

Euphemia Thu 20-Mar-14 23:19:25

Same as cavers do - wide mouthed

I read this as cadavers. blush confused

Andy Kirkpatrick (the guy she is climbing with) and his teenage daughter were teasing Alex about this on Twitter a couple of nights ago. Andy's dd Ella, is also an experienced big wall climber, they did an "Our Story" for CBeebies last year where they climbed El Capitain in Yosemite.
