That was awesome!!
The climbing was great, the scenery was beautiful, and they didn't take themselves too seriously. Probably not a great "how to" video for beginners. I loved the editing and commentary. In the beginning they had to have meant for her to look like she was talking to the sheep. that was great.
Oh yeah, She is SMOKIN' hot!!!
Thanks for the link.

Her face doesn't exactly look like death dropped a steamer on top of her neck, but I agree, it's not "hot". However, her body is. Methinks you've been in Vegas too long looking at plastic boobies. This is not every day reality lol.

People who chalk up more than they touch the rock should be made to downclimb it with a toothbrush scrubbing the excess chalk off. Espcially on well traveled routes.


You've obviously never been to North Wales. Climbing on slate is like climbing on glass, and the routes all run with water for half the year so nature does the scrubbing for you. Finally, The Quarryan is not really a "well traveled route.". Not many repeats of the crux pitch (2?)and the entire route (4 pitches) has never seen a one day ascent.

The fact that it is 4 pitches of mostly serious trad climbing is why it gets an E grade. The other pitches aren't all bolt protected and aren't very safe. Also, according to Johnny Dawes (guy in the vid), if you fall anywhere on the second half of the bolted crux pitch, you smash your face open. The E grade isn't just about danger either, but overall seriousness and sustainedness (I know, that's not a word).

Back in the day the E grade was used for everything in the UK. All those sport routes at Malham Cove were originally given E grades. It wasn't until the 80's (around the same time as this vid was taken) that you started to see French sport grades used. The Yorkshire Limestone routes were mostly changed over to the sport grades but in Wales, things change slowly, if at all.

Haha, yea a bit I guess. Except the slate would be the best climbing in CT. In Wales it's not even in the top half!

I was just messing with ya man I don't know anything about the climbing in CT. If you've got good crags with no crowds you should try and keep it that way!

Definitely great video! UK and Ireland climbers have serious stones.

Plus they are still rocking duck tails.

i dont have a problem with yanking the bolts for cracks and other routes that take clean gear...however because the dialogue on this subject is about of cordial as a monkey house poop flingathon, I too hope that the bolt yanker 9000 Deluxe edition does not make it to Amurica, least some over zealous trad weenie go a pull off all the bolts at the undertow wall at the red or some such dribble Rob Warden, Space Lizard
