      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

Great mixed climbing video

Recommended Posts

tough climbing, full-on effort, good show! scariest spot for me was seeing the way the whole bulge was plated low on the route, maybe a minute in - would be easy to hit the ground if the surface came away...

This was one of the better climbing sequence films I've seen - far more interesting than most "professional" videos.

 

About half way through, when he's making the hand moves on the rock shelf and then plants his axe in the ice bulge, I was thinking

 

"That doesn't look like it's in too well"

 

Then when he matches hands on the tool with one on the head, I was thinking

 

"No way can that be a secure position, he's going to leverage out the tool"

 

Then he did it again and the tool blew, and I jumped out of my chair watching that fall.

 

Awesome stuff.

I think that he is falling on the cam in video although he fell several times working on the route.
