why on earth did someone retrosoundtrack that movie with creed? it is almost unwatchable without the sound off...

That vid made my gooch hurt. Who else wanted to see a whipper from the "body stem" position?

You stay away from mah pig!
Yeah, the movement alone makes that Quarryman video trad-worthy! One thing, I remember that the route recently saw a rare repeat (can't remember by whom), and it is supposedly a very solid 8a/5.13b, so, the youtube description of it as 11d is just wrong (as well as the fact that it gets an E-grade; how does a sport line get an E-rating?).

In the movie there's a little line saying "E8 7a" as he starts off. The 11d rating is probably a mistranslation -- French sport 7a is about Yosemite 11d. This climb is apparently British 7a, which is about French 8a.

One thing about the Quarryman video. Creed? Really? Keep the sound off.

That was great. Maybe not so much for the climbing, but for the adventure. This video highlights something I am always wrestling with. I am all for reducing carbon footprint, and minimalist this and that, but the reality is that much of what we do today is absolutely pinned on technology, which in turn is pinned on a carbon footprint at some level. Maybe this would be a good start to another thread discussion.
What trailers would these guys have had to have to make this work? How much more water should they have had? I'm thinking double.... This was pretty epic to me. In the climbing world we usually see epics revolving around cold and ice. This one was heat driven...

I can't wait to see the video of them trying it again and learn what changes they made in their gear.
Thanks for the video:)

Here's a video I made of Patrick climbing Squat in Vedauwoo. Don't know if it qualifies as awesome, but Patrick & the route are so figured I'd post up:

Yeah pretty cool, but one could possible argue that the destruction of the trailer wheels negates their low carbon foot print. Those looked like great grocery store trailers but they didn't stand a chance out there.

That said the idea of combining bikepacking with climbing is pretty cool. I can't see anyway they could have even moved with twice as much water. In the SW it's always going to be about heat and water. Seems like this trip would be way more doable in cooler months. Better to carry some warm clothes and less water.

As for the trailers maybe one of these bobgear.com/yak would work better.

Glad to see this guy pulling on bushes. This justifies my use of the tactic.


Wait, living things don't count as holds? Half my tick list is a lie. Now it's reallllly sad. I too have never been greeted by livestock upon topping out. I'm starting to believe I have no idea what I'm doing.

I happened upon these last night when I was looking up WC Heliums. I had no idea even the smallest ones were still over 10kn. Awesome. And you're welcome.
