Video Of Angie Payne’s FFA Of The Automator (V13) Now Online

Deadpoint Magazine has a nice video put together of Angie Payne’s FFA of the RMNP, CO testpiece The Automator (V13) which made a lot of news last week.  The video does a nice job showing some of the struggle that goes into an ascent like this, and it also makes the best of the fact that Payne didn’t send until long after the sun had set.

    Wow, inspiring. The video makes it obvious just how much work she put into it and just how motivated she was. Makes me want to get outside and start throwing myself at something really hard (but alas I’m stuck inside today).

    Awesome. So motivating.

    And, much better than the previous video posted on CN (that Louder than 11 video “full chaos” was the worst climbing video, literally, I’ve ever seen). The worst climbing video ever.

      Didn’t like that one eh? It certainly wasn’t the best “climbing” video per se but I found it amusing nonetheless for being a bit different than your average video. I can assure there are much worse videos out there.

        John must have wronged some people out (or slept with a lot of guys sister’s or girl friends) cause on every site I got to people are down on his videos. I actually liked full chaos. It did not have the effects that he’s known for. I thought it did a pretty good job of showing the area in summer time.

        Have to agree with Narc that there are some terrible vids out there and by no means was this one bad at all.

    Rather than “repeats,” aren’t such achievements typically called “FFAs” (first female ascents)?

      I suppose I meant to use that but didn’t want to get carried away with the term? I don’t know. Since you mentioned it I think I’ll go back and update things a bit…

    Maximum stars, this one hits the ball right out of the park. Anyone involved with this clip deserves a big pat on the back. Fierce.

    In March when the video of Nic sending the Raven came on and everyone bashed how his tantrum. Now this video comes along with Angie kicking the wall and all and it’s all love and respect? Don’t get me wrong, I love the video (I love both videos) but isn’t that a bit curious? I guess it’s the yelling and swearing that make the difference, huh?

      Interesting point. I’d have to see the Raven video again but my recollection was that Nic’s reaction after sending was a bit more…extreme…over the top…I don’t know. I personally think it’s good to see climbers showing emotion and investment in what they are doing.

    Adam Indra throws fits that are far more embarrassing than either of these and no one ever says anything just because he’s so strong. I don’t mind people getting frustrated but I hate seeing that amount of freak out.

    Comparing Nic to anyone of a different species much less the opposite sex? In all honesty, obscenity laden anger fueled masochism. Sounds like about where the girls disappear. Good to see the CO crowd has at least a few overachievers rediscovering the good vibe CO had before the population explosion.

    N. Postma (not an asshole in the right crowd)

    BTW, I like Nic and wish he would start a gang, clear out the posers, and enforce like the last generation did. Putting an end to grid bolting Willow would be a good start.

    …yet inspiring none the less. It was part of my motivation to try to start my first truly long term projects. Anyway, once again, props to Angie, I’ll bet only bigger things are yet to come.
