I don’t think realisation is considered the first 9a+ these days. Alex Huber’s Open Air gets 9a+ (though it was initially given 9a), and of course there’s Fred Rouhling’s Akira, though that hasn’t been repeated.

It’s actually a somewhat important distinction from a medical perspective, although you can figure out the part the matters without actually knowing whether it was a sudden onset or not. Basically, if it’s a sudden onset, then the person probably still has energy to
It looks like a remote controlled quadcopter that has a camera mounted on it. I believe this was a stunt from Richard Branson’s TV show “The Rebel Billionaire.”
I live there! It’s awesome. Heres a [link](http://nilssenphotography.com/2013/08/08/surfing/) to a local photographer if you want to see more northern surfing
I can’t say this as someone who’s run any large drops but I’ve been kayaking for a long time and watched plenty of large drops run and stared at large enough drops that I can usually tell if a waterfall is runnable and see
Have you jumped off the one at serpy falls? I jumped off the very top of it before, I know your not suppose to, but I was there with people who do it all the time, as long as you jump in the right
I dry heaved while belaying my second up Reed’s. This was after I pulled / sat on pieces up the entire second half of the pitch. It was not as pretty as he is making it look in this photo.
If he was doing a back flip, is it away from the target? How do toy do a back flip and face it? I need to understand how this works, did he get a running hand spring start into this? The way the photo
It’s hard for me to tell…but is he in the process of falling? Amazing picture, can’t wait to see more or a video of the FA. From this perspective it looks like a sheer cliff face.
I am a motorcyclist as well and there’s no way in hell I’d get on the road without a helmet. It is a personal choice whether to wear one. But in skydiving, as in biking, it is considered a poor decision not to. Here
Cool pic, belayed my buddy on Rage, right next to this. How that fucker can hang on through a 30 foot horizontal roof while cranking 12+ moves at the end is beyond me.
or for that matter why is he wearing a harness? Im guessing they were on their way to climb a fang and stopped to ice boulder on this wall
Man the the stuff in the photo is awesome but that is a terrible picture. Really washed out. (I have no idea if that is the correct term)
Just watched *The Long Hope* last night! That wall looks so scary…when he gets to that ledge and just stands there, all I could think of was “why is he not putting in protection? I would be putting in protection…” but I am not
Traditionally it comes down to wing size, but there is a good amount of line blurring happening at the moment as wing performance has improved substantially in the last 5 years. The goals tend to be different to. Speedflying typically involves a rapid descent
Heck yeah dude…First time I went skydiving, it was a tandem jump since you need a license and all that to skydive alone here. When he opened the plane door, and got to the edge, I had the deer in the headlights look and
[Better Picture here](http://i.imgur.com/v2N7u5M.jpg) that doesn’t give indication of height (but you can imagine that it’s pretty high!). [The Great (Charles) Blondin](http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Charles_Blondin) was a French Tightrope Artist in the mid-1800s who was the first person to cross Niagara Falls on a tightrope. He then went
there were a few ‘nopers’ there when i went. Funny thing is that they all were so terrified that not only did they not go out on it, but they failed to realize that they were nope nope noping about 10 cm from the
From MountainProject.com: “I put up this route one weekend with a sore tendon while all my friends were climbing. It just looked like a great beginning climb with great moves and good holds. The name comes from a beautiful young hippie girl that offered
Lincoln is defiantly a good beginner spot. You should also check out Horse Shoe Canyon, they have all kinds of climbing out there. Or come visit us over at LCP Climbing Gym! 20 min from the U of A, great little hidden gym of
What is the gross weight and what is the weight rating for the paraglider? Edit:From the video…The engine was not running at touchdown. The training wheels are to keep the bike upright when it lands.
Yea I don’t really get why they wouldn’t just continue the boultline to the bottom so you didn’t have to ‘trad climb’ that first ‘pitch’ to the first bolt. The runout that scares some people up high is honestly so well protected I don’t
Thanks, I am a photographer, just not a sports one, so this was pretty challenging and I didn’t have the right equipment to do it properly. I just had to go when I heard about this swell though, this is the biggest it’s been
