I always thought that onsight was walking up with no beta and sending the route. And to flash it adds a redpoint moniker. I guess it is repetitive, but what about a pinkpoint, with a fall. Maybe, I am just old crotchedy trad climber…maybe
Holy shit that is insane. I love seeing photos like this that showcase the true steepness of mountains. Notice the huge patch of ice on the right. He just has a narrow path on the left with no room for error. Just thinking about
why involve bloody fuel in patagonia honestly. plenty of cowboys out there probably rather they tow you by horse 😀
The place is called ship wreck island [http://www.zakynthostravelguide.com/2012/05/guide-to-shipwreck-cove-zakynthos.html!](http://www.zakynthostravelguide.com/2012/05/guide-to-shipwreck-cove-zakynthos.html)
Pokhara? I took a canoe out on the lake at sunset, watched lots of paragliders come down from the ridge backlit from the annapurnas alpenglow. So beautiful. Paddled across the lake and got beer from a store in the top right of your photo,
No. The rope will be Kevlar wick, and there are different fuels you can use but the 2 most popular are white gas(camping fuel) and tiki torch fuel. Gasoline burns too dirty and hot to be used for fire spinning. Concerning flinging specks of
This right here. Not Great America but I’ve been to a few parks like this when it was raining and still open. Great time, was just me and my friends, rides were still up but no other people.
ehh, they don’t have the roll rate of an extra-300 but they’re maneuverable enough. (you might like the end). What *I’m* impressed by, is that they’re in blaniks http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/LET_L-13_Blan%C3%ADk Which are training gliders from .. pretty much the late 50’s…. you can move the
I think the video shows the problem far better than the picture I’m afraid, the sweep of rock in the foreground isn’t a patch on the backdrop to the right of the boulder (although I appreciate the steepness and ‘wow’ factor of cutting loose
>How? It’s a granite boulder that saw a ton of traffic. People forget that granite breaks all the time here. >Did anyone get hurt? Not sure, but given that the broken hold is two feet off the ground I doubt it. >etc? [Here’s a
I’ve always wanted to jump Lompoc. I’ve only ever had the chance to jump up in Lodi where the view is all pasture.
Thanks for the information. If you look at the post times, I actually posted this question before the comment about the roof being a ’27’. Also, I am only familiar with the Yosemite Decimal System. While ‘6.X’ climbs aren’t officially a part of that
All of the stuff he does is actually relatively easy, maybe except the hanging by his legs(one leg, for that matter). I think hes got a lot of balls though, to do what he does. I would never do the same thing unless Ive

Being a kayaker myself I am definitely not an authority on this subject, but my skydiver friend and I discussed this the other day. It is 100 skydives plus a fee to sign up for the day. They also cap the number of jumpers
I grew up near the open Atlantic, and I assure you that stories like this tend not to have happy endings. Every couple of years there’s a new moron who thinks he’s invincible, and another set of parents receive a tragic phone call from

Explain my misunderstanding I assume? 1148 feet sounds like a long way, because it’s in the thousands! I think in ‘proper’ units (metric/SI) and I don’t have any idea about imperial units, I don’t even try to think how big they are because they

I actually found out today that the dam from Goldeneye is in Switzerland and I was standing on top of it not knowing http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Contra_Dam [Photo 1](https://fbcdn-sphotos-b-a.akamaihd.net/hphotos-ak-snc6/246590_447267765291784_458173914_n.jpg) [Photo 2](https://fbcdn-sphotos-a-a.akamaihd.net/hphotos-ak-ash4/428490_447267935291767_900755309_n.jpg]) [Apparently I’m just an unobservant idiot](https://fbcdn-sphotos-g-a.akamaihd.net/hphotos-ak-ash4/252358_447267888625105_1890913838_n.jpg)
I’d argue that the mercury missions are where the US space program was taking the biggest risks. By Apollo 11 we had a lot of time to figure out how to safely travel to and from space, but a lot of the earlier missions
Yea it’s a slab right? I’m looking at the angle of the trees and it looks like the wall is at like 80º?
Interesting side note to that fact: Federation Peak is also the peak most frequented by emergency personnel in Tasmania.
