Boulderers wearing beanies and no shirt while yelling like Ondra on v4s don't affect me either, but they are tools nonetheless.


Arguably, so are individuals who belittle boulderers wearing beanies and no shirt while yelling like on Ondra on v4's from their computer.

2 tips. Don't be so judgmental and don't let other people impact your experience unless they are compromising your safety.

Are you judging my judgementalism?

There's a balance between capturing the moment... and living in it.


true, it is called a pocket camera...the folks with Go Pro have the same problem as their brethren with deadbird $300 pants and $700 jackets (and yes I realize much of the time they are one and same)...they worry more about ripping their clothes than stepping on the damn rope with their crampons or falling down an easy to arrest ice chute because one is trying to protect his (relatively) expensive camera instead of focusing on what the hell is going on.

I never thought I would want a go-pro, but this sounds cool.

I was thinking the same thing. My gf and I have very few climbing pics because we're often too busy or we forget. But a pic every minute or so sounds like a good solution. Still, not sure I want to be bothered with it. Maybe.

Lots of cameras will do this. My Pentex WG-II does it very well. It doesn't have to be a GoPro.

Lets not forget the value of remembering the moment you forgot your ice tool technique, get hit by falling ice, then tumble hundreds of feet before being self-arrested by your ass. Priceless.


Hahaha, this made my day.

How would you mount that to take shots while you were climbing?

I've owned two GoPro's now and I've been very pleased with both products. If you believe GoPro is the only company trying to tilt the table in their favour, you're sadly mistaken.

GoPro leads the market for a reason. Tremendous product.
