Comments: Been a climber almost 40 years. A few big walls including A4 high on El Cap. Never done anything as horrifying as this.

Consider just one aspect of the Russian Roulette. Sure, if lead climber falls right or left, then No. 2 should jump the other direction, if he has the nerve. But what if instead of No. 1, the snow crumbles under No. 2 and he goes one way or the other? Lead climber won't see or be able to react until the rope pulls him.

If No. 3 sees No. 2 fall, and has the steel to dive opp... more >>

Comments: So, MP has developed this tradition of old lechers making leering comments about beautiful women and PC scolds rebuking the lechers for sexism--as if some of the women weren't inviting the admiration that gets posted. Not sure where this comment will fall on the spectrum.

Allen, I think I know you and your wife have parted since this pic was taken. That makes me sad for you and for her. For better or worse, and whoever's idea, that is always painful.

And now, my gawd, what a lithe and beauti... more >>

Comments: I led that pitch and got to the belay with only enough rope for a clove hitch on the locking biner. My partner yelled at me for not tying a real knot.

Comments: Okay, I'll be the curmudgeon and dissent from all the praise. If a 5.7 move looks 5.12, it means the photog is deceiving the viewer.

Comments: Is that a Whillains Sit Harness? I learned to climb and failed and bailed on Half Dome in one of those. Even a couple real falls. Never took the great, castra-slicing center stroke in one, but it was always in the back of my mind. Why, pray tell, would anyone design a harness with a strap smack over your package?

Comments: Climbed there a lot back in the day, but encountering an enormoise tortoise would would definitely be a highlight.

Comments: As Dustin B and Count Chocula say, the upper face is scary: feels like enormous, puzzle-wedged, loose, vibrating blocks hold the whole face together. Don't climb it, or climb it once; the location is amazing. But you can still climb Gambit, get comparable or better location, and avoid the Jenga Russian Roulette at the top. Just use the first belay ledge on the face to cut down and left to the arete and finish on a Rewritten-quality blade.

After turning on to the face... more >>
