Oh yeah and I am aware that it is not about elite climbers climbing shit on the other side of the planet. It was actually filmed in Victoria. So not sure if it is relevant on this website but heres for nothing. :)

Would I do something like that? I do think rick rolling has finally jumped the shark.

In fact it's better than nice-one, it's great!
Itís certainly a well done, thought provoking clip; as well as being dark-humorous.

Awesome, I agree you can never have too many cowbells (in music and in climbing)!

That was great. I'm worried though that CJ is taking my market on silly climbing films except he actually knows how to make good films. Maybe I should just hand my ideas over.

Those hexes looked too new. They needed to be used as instruments to actually rough them up a bit.

I went for a bit of a wander at Buffalo today and was at a good vantage point (with my camera), on the way up to The Cathedral saddle, where one can look back at Sultan.

I thought of the video featured in this thread when I saw a party starting the third pitch off the traverse ledge, as it was obvious to me that the leader was making hard work of the cruxy start to that pitch.
After two tentative false starts he got established at what appeared to me from a distance, to be above the two or three move crux, so I thought he now had it in the bag...


He plummeted off (possibly pulling a bit of gear, though it was hard to determine this from my location), for basically a factor two fall onto the belay (if no gear involved) by pulling up with rope stretch 10 m below it!

The whipper certainly called him, and I was impressed that he didn't wipe out his belayer in the process. He ended up back slamming the face upside down, and I reckon I could hear his grunt from where I was, or was it his helmet hitting the face(?), along with the cowbell tinkle of gear involved of the whipper death rattles!

They managed to abseil off and had lunch in the tree shade below the first pitch, so I didn't manage to catch up with them to offer the photos I took. If they read this, then they can PM me to get them sent...

Thanks guys! It was fun.I think I will do some more to pass the time. Hey Wendy lets do a collaboration!

That was great CJ, maybe you've found your calling ;)
5:30:29 PM
Well done, that made me laugh, still doesn't beat a rick roll though.

This made my day! Love it, thanks for all the effort!

What's a whipper to you? (A Chockstone thread circa 2007).

Upside down [Another 2007 thread of some interest.., at least it was to me as it must be one of the few of that length on this site (61 posts), that I wasn't a contributor too!].
