  1. I just added your web page to my bookmarks. I enjoy reading your posts. Thank you!

  2. It’s an unrelenting route because it overhangs at the top, and the climber must get into unbalanced positions and moves.

    Funny how he’s wearing a t-shirt advertising ROPES.

    Hard to find climbing vids that keep the interest for most viewers, I think. For the climber, the whole event is life-focusing and dangerous. Trad climbing with a rope and hand-placed protection looks on film like paint drying.

    My hands are sweating.

  3. Sometimes I wake up in the middle of the night yelling in my sleep because I was dreaming about hanging in some precarious spot with a sure death fall awaiting. It’s beyond my comprehension that guys deliberately go out of their way on purpose to put themselves in that exact spot.

    Way too hairball


  4. I’ve been trained in HALO jumps and have seventeen of them to my credit. I don’t have a problem with heights either.

    Just watching that gave me the heebie jeebies. Ew…. Jumping out of an airplane at 20,000′ is nothing compared to that. :>)
