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.

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.
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.
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
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
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
No she is not free soloing it! She is following on this pitch and the rope is just not visible in the shot.

It’s actually about 155 30 second exposures blended, using a [common technique for getting star trails](http://digital-photography-school.com/better-star-trails-photographs-with-starstax/) that also works for getting headlamps for the same reason. Each individual shot was 30 seconds @ f/2.8, ISO 400, 55mm. When I set up the camera I
So you climb it in days and you sleep on the wall typically. A big wall is a physically demanding task; climbers must haul everything they need to live for a few days and climb 10 pitches or so a day. you wear gloves

Sonnie is the man. You will never meet a more happy, motivated, and friendly person anywhere. Not to mention he has put up some of the most groundbreaking routes in Canadian Rockies history over the past 10 years. If only any of us were
Old thread but I actually made it there this weekend. Got rained out on Friday, but had an awesome day on Saturday. Ended up mostly climbing at Triple Corners. What a neat place. Will definitely be visiting again.
I know The Nazgul, sent it last Spring after 4yrs of effort. It’s a high stand start, you need to stack pads or use the rock pile at the base. The starting crimps are good if you have skinny fingers and even then there’s
She did really well I thought, especially for going straight onto WI4. They’re Black Diamond Cyborg crampons.
Aww, that article is sad. Those formations would be amazing to climb on, but you can’t argue with it.
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
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.
