Above the beautifully positioned routes at Makapuu...
Right on. Like to see those in action on the Shield headwall.

Guess the official name will be "gekko hooks".

"Professional climber"? I don't think so.

We're probably still a few years off, but I think this will be available in our lifetimes. They will use MEMS technology to make those hooks microscopic, and it will be the best tape you've ever seen...able to attach and reattach over and over again without losing adhesion.

People will be freeing El Cap in an easy afternoon, and if you think our current debates about style are bad now....

It will be interesting.

Her style was reprehensible. . . couldn't you see her pulling out with her hand just before she completely weighted the Gecko-fishhook-frankenshit device? Any sensible, mediocre aid-queen knows not to do that.
Professional. . . pff.
