this thread could be vastly improved by stopping the cat video from auto starting each time you load the page, but I guess going to the next page also takes care of that

I noticed the same thing (cat vid restarting every few minutes), but couldn't figure out why it did it. I just clicked "pause".

Done! Annoyed me too.

Within the embedded html code on that post was this: &autoplay=true

It has been set to the obviously opposite value.

Just . . . damn. Talk about strength-to-weight ratio. This kid's a string bean with Popeye forearms who absolutely defies gravity. Nice post Fish.

Re: Ondra

Not to take anything away from his strength and skill, but a question about the rules of the game. How is it a first ascent when you take a fall - or for that matter tension - on bolts you didn't place?

how? that's how most of Europe climbs. I spent years in climbing areas there where every bolt was put in by the "Alpenverein" - power drill and cement. You still have to climb it.

Oh I get climbing that way (even though I come from the time when the ethic was transitioning from " take your pitons/leave your bolts" to "no more bolts") but as you say,

is my point exactly. I am trying to understand what constitutes "climbing it". The video appears to show him taking tension on at least one of the anchors, and definitely taking a fall below the top. Or was the last move such a gimme that he doesn't actually need to top out?

I didn't watch it that closely - cared more about the camera work than the dude climbing. Seems like they did two climbs and the second one showed him at first working out the route before actually climbing it.

Yeah, it was two climbs. The first was a repeat but the second was billed as a first ascent. Awesome skills displayed, maybe it looked a little cavalier because of that: it was harder than he made it look. And what looked like tension on the anchors could have been camera angles.

What did you think of the camera work?

well, it wasn't your usual climbing video - landscape, interesting angles, especially many shots that put scale into the image - ll done with a certain style. So I looked up what else the maker of the film has onlinne. I think this one got him the gig with Black Diamond:

another one of my favorites - looked at this a dozen times this last winter before I headed out west with my ski. Not your usual "Warren Miller" ski movie - gotta watch this full screen in HD:

I want one... had a hunch this was RC, since nobody in their right mind would fly a glider or plane like that video above shows grin
