where is the best legal deep water soloing?

in the region, in the states? I was recently at Norris Lake with my son and he enjoyed that climbing more than any other type he has tried before, but it is pretty limited there (although I may have missed some good spots around that Lake as I only have been on a small portion of it), did I hear cor...

Belly of the beast jug rest before a short crux, Mirage is a longer route but it is crimpy in the crux and the crux is low on the route, So Long Mr. Petey lay down rest before a short crimpy crux

Re: French climbers tearing it up

graniteclimber you're right my post was lame, I was hoping someone would come up with a better report, I know one of the climbers is Enzo Oddo, as for the one who sent Southern Smoke I had to ask him a couple of times before he would tell me he sent it so if he doesn't feel like spraying then I am n...

French climbers tearing it up

some French climbers have been sending hard in the Red, at least one has done Southern Smoke recently (he is not one to spray about himself so I will leave his name off this as I don't know if he would like that) anyone got any better reports on the sending spree from them or others?

Re: Please Explain It To Me.

Ian, you totally missed my point, we are in agreement about most of what you stated, for the 5.7 climber sending 5.8 is just as big a deal as the 13a climber sending something a bit harder than he(she) ever did before, of course the current ability of the climber has to help define the challenge, wh...

Re: Please Explain It To Me.

why are grades important: because whether you admit it or not for most of us it is not the beauty of climbing or the aesthetics of the wall or being outside that is most important, it is being able to face a considerable challenge (often physical and mental) and come out of it a better person for ha...

Re: How long was it before you sent your first 5.12?

Willy, its okay to chase numbers you can do that and also enjoy climbing those two aren't mutually exclusive, I agree with JR's advice also check out "The self coached climber" by Hague and Hunter and "9 out of 10 climbers make the same mistakes" by Macleod, those are my two favorite training books,...

Re: How 5.15's are there in the US now?

I suspect if Jonathan Siegrist finishes the Vader project this springl there will be another, if those two if's occur I suspect the Red would have to be the leader in North American 5.15's at one area
