The UOAA issued a warning on the incredible high factors generated by the dangers of getting stoked.



52 hours of getting stoked? Unreal!!

it's interesting that the "Legends" division is all 20 something's

i was expecting some old school radsters, now that would be worth watching. too bad old dudes don't boulder because it's dangerous and lame all at the same time

The most amazing thing about that video is that Ondra not only didn't win, he came in last! I know he's more about real rock and sport, but I still would expect him to dominate. Any idea when this comp is from?

In terms of stoke-inducing videos, sometimes bouldering can do it, but almost never plastic-pulling. Here is a good example with Ondra yet again:

Yup, I hope for some real rocks for a stoke soon, not bouldering on plastic

I think you might be confusing "stoke" with something else.

"Hey guys, come join me at this little campfire of stoke I found. This campfire is making me happy and I'd like to share it with you all"

Resident MP overposters who likely did not do any climbing today:

"Hey a little stoke fire that doesn't match the type I like exactly. I think I'll pee on it for that reason alone. This act should make other people think that I'm above being stoked and therefore cool. I like to use the sound of my piss putting out a stoke fire to cover up my raging insecurities"

My "stoke" threshold must be lower than many. I LOVED this video. Many climbing videos bore me, but in this one, I really felt I knew how hard the climbing was, plastic or not... Don McGrath

Dont be such a bitch, watching shirtless dudes grunting and climbing indoors just doesnt get most of us that stoked.... If thats your sort of thing thats fine but are we not allowed to post our opinion?

All opinions are good. I'm just surprised. That's all.
