Will Murphy on the grit classic
Technical Master 6B at Millstone.
It had been a long while since i’d stepped foot at Millstone and its still as amazing as ever, the gritstone cracks really are as good as they say.
A little bit of side news, Andy is heading to font next weekend, if anyone wants to meet up him and Ant will be there for a weekend, also sorry for the week of no releases, many technical issues along with some behind the scenes stuff. Anyway, much love from all of us here at OpenCrag.
In my opinion, the only real drawback to dating someone significantly older than you is that when you attempt an extreme sport together for the first time, you’re not allowed to scream “I’M TO YOUNG TO DIE!”, because it’s not tactful.
Ondra began his climb of the Dawn Wall last Monday – October 17 – and has been making steady progress up the face ever since. On his first day out, he managed to knock off seven quick pitches as he rapidly ascended the route, which falls along the southeast face of El Capitan, quite possibly the most famous rock climbing spot in the entire world.
If any climber out there could throw down on this it’d be Ondra (or Sharma). If I was to pit the two against each other on who would finish it first I’d lean towards Ondra…the energy that comes with youth goes a long way on those grueling big walls.
@Regrann_App from @maryywilke - Memories of the hardest climb, I’ve ever done - Up to Lago del Narèt, climbing through nearly every climate zones of europe starting in the warm and a southern climate, ending in a rugged landscape after nearly 1800 meters of climbing 🤘💙 #cycling#cycle#roadbike#lagodelnaret#memories#hardest#strong#sport#fitness#girl#healthy#alps#switzerland#shutuplegs#climbing#love#happy#breathtaking#nature#landscape#outsideisfree#justdoit - #regrann www.pedalnorth.com
oh no, now the oldest nephew was feeling outdone by his little brother with the black eye. He fell off playground equipment at school and sustained a supracondylar humerus fracture and is gonna be in the hospital overnight and need surgery. Poor munchkin. (Don’t follow that link if you don’t want to see an x-ray of a broken arm; the only thing that matters is that it’s a broken arm just above the elbow, and it’s incredibly rare in adults and incredibly common in children.)
This same kid had open-heart surgery at 9 months of age, so, he’s just racking up the experience points or something.
Although come to think of it his little brother (he of the black eye this morning) was in a cast for like half the summer for a broken bone in his foot, but that didn’t need any surgery. How did people ever survive to adulthood in the pre-modern era????
How many cumulative years is my sister gonna spend in the ER???
