Damn. Sharma was one of the only climbers I could recognize and name, and now I realize there’s another guy that looks just like him!
This was the place that got me interested in climbing! About 4 years ago, my dad and I took a road trip down the coast of California. Stumbled across these boulders on a hike, couldn’t resist scrambling up the easier stuff when I saw
Ah, that’s awesome, good for you. I’m from Ontario, moved to saskatchewan a couple of months ago, hoping to eventually find some work in BC. Man is it ever beautiful out there. I hope you enjoy every minute of life out there.
I don’t know and I don’t want anything to change. I only asked because it was rumoured that the reason they removed the FMX best trick event from the following summer games was due to his death.
For those not aware, the record previous to that was 98 feet set by Tao Berman back in like 2002 or something ridiculous. Someone may have set a record at around 120 feet, but either way.. The 189feet drop will be around for a
Any snow athlete knows you don’t try outrun an avalanche. No amount of adrenaline in the world could force me to even try. They **are** faster than you. This picture was taken just as the snow ‘cracked’ and an avalanche is *about* to start.
It depends on one’s angle of entry and the fluffiness of the landing. This drop is strange as one side has a harder hit and the other side is relatively soft. The greener the water is in the landing, the more likely it will
I guess it’s because it’s not regulated as strictly as other things, because 1: when people think of things the government should look into this doesn’t pop up all that much in comparison to other things. Yes it’s a huge issue, it’s just not
Looks like a different problem from this angle. I consider this as a benchmark V8 for the Tahoe bouldering region. Super rad and a cool approach past that skeleton of a ’50s era car.
It depends on your personality. For me it was a bit underwhelming. I was expecting a once in a lifetime type experience. It was, but once it was over it didn’t seem like that big of a deal. You jump out of the plane.

I’m not sure what they’re called but you should make one of those pictures where the waterfall is moving but you stay still in the middle…sort of like this: http://i.imgur.com/gTcPy2s.gif
that website is where i got the grade from. I know that Joshua Tree grades are usually rated easier than they actually are but this was also his first free solo. Right when we got there he said, “man my girlfriend is gonna be
good question. When building something like this, it’s best to make as few intrusions into the tree as possible. So, one or two big bolts at the top that hold up a rope ladder would have been far more preferable. You can’t treat living
I’m too rural for drifting to be a thing and I have no schedule so if I sign up for the closest days, I lose money and probably won’t make it. I have been able to see 1 drift event, 5 hours away. It’s
I was referring to free soloing with a parachute generally. If you’ve seen Valley Uprising, you know that climbing is getting pushed further and further to its limits. Free solo is a way to distinguish yourself, but just isn’t safe enough for most people.
[Here’s](http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uNXh9gXDd2Y) Tyler Bradt’s world record of 189ft at ~~Victoria Falls~~ Palouse Falls.
From a height like this you would generally break the water with the tail of the board upon landing. The board will come down some what vertically and then slide into the water. As stated in the other comment landing flat is going to
High exposure to wind at that height might have something to do with it…especially considering you dont enjoy the windshield protection offered by other buildings like you do on the street. That’s my theory. I’ve been buffered around a lot before on the top
I’m more of a hiker, but there seemed to be countless options. Vertical cliffs as well as numerous back canyons leading to other valleys.
It’s in New Braunfels, TX. It’s an old dam/power plant. I’ve seen some crazy shit there from some really good local riders.
Bixby can’t be highlined, well it could but the rangers would shut it down immediately because it is too visible from the road. This bridge is before bixby if you’re coming from Monterey, and has no visibility from the road, you just have to
