There were around six people taking turns because it was a newly installed route, and everyone was failing.

The boyfriend said that holding the last hold for five seconds is supposed to be the “right way” of finishing the route.

The woman said she made it look so easy that she definitely could have.

Jealous of Success

The redditor thinks her boyfriend was just hurt that she was able to do it, and he wasn’t.

The girl laughed and told the woman’s boyfriend boyfriend that he couldn’t even start the route correctly and then walked off.

The High-Five

The Redditor gave the girl a high-five because she was walking toward her and had done an amazing job on the route.

The girl was surprised but reciprocated the high-five.

The boyfriend apparently turned to her and gave her an incredulous look, and refused to speak to her the rest of the night.

Taking Sides

When they were on their way home, he said that his girlfriend “couldn’t be trusted to watch his back” since she took a stranger’s side over his.

The woman was surprised that that was what he took from the situation and told him that he shouldn’t have criticized the girl when she clearly executed the climb correctly.
