I would also suggest "Hyperventilating on the knife edge", if you want to see one of the biggest climbing douches take someone totally not comfortable to Capitol peak.
What about poor guy behind who is freezing his juevos in shorts on the cold rock, but still offering emotional and logistical support? A bit of empathy here, por favor.

Nominee for most tacky mountain climbing move is "Star Trek- the Final Frontier". Captain Kirk is free soloing El Capitan and has an issue.

Jeff Lowe's Meatnoia was also good. I was extremely sad to see his journey. What an absolute legend.
