Valley Uprising Nostalgic

Smart piece by Andrew Bisharat about the new Reel Rock Tour film Valley Uprising that premieres tomorrow night in Boulder, CO:

Why are we watching this film in 2014—really? And what does our pervasive nostalgia for 1970s-era Yosemite climbing culture suggest about our sport today?

It just so happens that I’ll be seeing the movie tomorrow night, and I’ll definitely be keeping a lot these points in the back of my mind as I take in the show.

Honnold Free Solos Squamish’s University Wall

Alex Honnold has been keeping busy up in Squamish, soloing 290 pitches for his 29th birthday on August 17th and then soloing University Wall on The Chief:

This August 25, Honnold hiked from the parking lot along Highway 99, passing a small gaggle of climbers below the popular 5.10 finger crack Seasoned in the Sun and James Lucas on his way back down from his own clambering on University Wall, to arrive at the left side of the Chief’s massive Grand Wall and the base of his objective. He started climbing, thankful to be wearing a t-shirt to protect his skin from the chimneys and offwidths on the lower pitches. Reaching past Bellygood Ledge, he continued up The Roman Chimneys for its extra four pitches of 5.10 and 5.11 to top out.

Interesting interview to go along with that article as well.

A Group Lifts Paraclimbers To Higher Goals

Nice piece in the New York Time the other week on The Adaptive Climbing Group, a group of paraclimbers in New York:

The Adaptive Climbing Group is the brainchild of Kareemah Batts, of Brooklyn, who once swore that she would never rock-climb. But she came around to the sport after a battle with cancer that cost her a part of a leg. She then found that she wanted to climb with other amputees and formed the group.
