Now I know what I’m doing wrong when I’m climbing. Not screaming enough.
You wont need to start screaming until v8+ and 5.13+
Talk about climbing “a muerte”…
Cool to see Core cheering him on. I really wish the video quality was a bit clearer.
Agree. I wasn’t sure you could even film in non-HD these days. Either way, nice to see the footage so soon.
Wait I thought it was the sit start he recently completed?
Here’s Christian Core climbing “Gioia Sit Start 8C+” on YouTube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SBivfjAU_fA
It appears to be more of an extension to Gioia 8A+ (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mkG0VQbJrR8) than a SDS per se.
It wouldn’t be the first time a problem deemed a “sit-start” was never really climbed from sitting on the ground . . . quite an issue in many cases for those concerned about doing a problem from the correct start.
Always impressive to see how perfect his technique is, no matter how hard he’s trying. Can learn a lot from that
His technique is really not perfect at all… it’s unique for sure, but not perfect.
So whats perfect technique to you? I think near perfect technique comes with someone who climbs one of the hardest rock climbs in the world.
i would like to see LD on film, compared to the OG (original Game), compared to this, compared to TSOW. line ‘em up.
classic ondra. wobblin on the rock. the climber i love to hate to watch. or hate to love to watch. i think both
Holy fuck that looked hard. Inspiring to watch. And very, very cool that Christian himself was there.
So cool. I’m going to climb everyday now until I can do that.
anyone know why the video was removed/if it can be found somewhere else?
Good question. Seems a little late to unring this bell.
Nice blog, I am very impressed on knowing that this information is being shared here and actively discussed by these commentators here. I do want to know certain updates though. !!!
