The Hardest Rock Climb in Thailand

Incredible climb of the hardest Sport Climbing Route in Thailand. After breaking his finger on this climb three years ago Steve Townshend came back to try it again.

It was very nice to meet this amazing Vegan powered climbing machine. He inspired me to climb harder and even to find a project of my own... (more on that latter) And most important, to enjoy climbing it self without stressing about the goal (send) too much.

So, Enjoy! And if you do don't forget the like button!
Peace And Love!

INSANE Norwegian Rock Climber (Magnus Midtbø)

Magnus Midtbø (born 18 September 1988) is a Norwegian rock climber. In May 2013, Midtbø on-sighted the 8c+ (5.14c) route Cosi fan tutte at Rodellar in Spain. As of April 2013, only four other people had on-sighted at the 8c+ level or higher: Patxi Usobiaga, Adam Ondra, Ramon Julian Puigblanque, and Alex Megos. In August 2010, he made his hardest ascent to date, when he sent the route Ali Hulk sit start extension in Rodellar in Spain. The route is a boulder (climbed without rope) and a sport climbing route linked together and the first ascent was made by Daniel Andrada in 2007. The grade is 9b (5.15b) and at 2013 there are only six climbers who have climbed routes at this level in the world. In an interview with UK Climbing, Midtbø stated that there were many difficulties with this climb, including resting in the first part for working the route (it's a boulder without rope), and the strain on the core because it is overhanging.

Jain Kim shows perfect rock climbing technique in Suwon, South Korea. She demonstrates many rock climbing and bouldering techniques and makes it look effortless.

@7:45 she does a high step to avoid a high commitment move. Every other competitor went with a right foot flag on the lower hold and about %50 of them missed the move.

She tops both routes with ease. Also, she was the only one to top Womens Route B. Unfortunately I could not stay for the later rounds of the event, but she went to go on to win the event.

Jain Kim (Hangul: 김자인, born 11 September 1988) is a professional climber. She is mainly active in lead climbing and bouldering competitions. She won the Lead Climbing World Cup three times (2010, 2013, 2014), the Lead Climbing World Championship once (2014), and the Rock Master once (2010, Lead discipline).

Right now I'm going to show you how to tie in using a Figure 8 Follow-Through with a Double Fisherman's as the safety knot. When I select the rope that I'm going to tie into, I want to make sure that, as the climber, I tie into the rope that's closest to the wall, the end of the rope coming away from the belay bar is going to be for the belayer.

Once I've grabbed the proper end of the rope, the first thing I'm going to do is tie a Figure 8 knot. I'm going to do so by grabbing about an arm's length, maybe a little bit more. I can drop the tail end of the rope and right now I'm going to do what's called making a bite in the rope, so this bend is called a bite.

Next, I'm going to grab the tail end of the rope and I'm going to wrap it over that bite, making sure that I'm wrapping across the ropes. Once I've done that, I'm going to take that tail end and poke it right back through the hole that I made, pulling that tail all the way through. When you're done, you'll have a Figure 8.

If your knot looks like anything other than an 8, then you've tied it improperly. One of the biggest benefits of using one of these Figure 8 knots is that they're very easy to identify. So if you have questions about it, make sure you just tie it again.

The next step is going to be to then tie yourself into this knot. So using this type of harness, I want to make sure that I'm threading the tail end of the rope through both my leg loops and also through the waist belt. I like to come from the bottom up because it's easier for me to identify that I've properly gotten both loops. If I were to go from the top down, it's a little bit easier to miss that leg loop spot, so I like to go from the bottom up.

Once I've done that, the rope is properly into my harness, I'm going to start to trace this knot back, making sure that I have two Figure 8's when I'm done. So to start tying the knot, it doesn't matter which side of the rope I start on, as long as you stay consistent. We are trying to get parallel lines here. So I'm going to start the knot, pulling that knot nice and close to my harness, trying to keep it about a fist's length away.

The next step is going to be just to continue to trace this knot around, following that initial Figure 8, wrapping it once again around the rope, finishing the knot through here. Once you get to this step, you want to do what's called dressing the knot. The way to do that is both ends of the Figure 8 knot need to be kind of tightened up or set in place. This makes the knot pull a little bit tighter, makes it a little easier to untie, and it prevents any weaknesses from having crosses in the rope.

Right here, to get the outside part of this knot a little bit tighter, I'm actually going to fold it in towards the knot, away from the two ropes that it's touching. Then to tighten this rope, I'm going to grab two ends of the knot, pull those two, grab the other two, and pull those two. It cinches a little bit tighter that way than grabbing the whole knot at the same time and trying to pull it all at once.

Once you've tied that Figure 8 knot, you're then going to tie your backup knot, which is the the Double Fisherman's knot. To do so, I'm going to grab the knot, taking this tail end, wrapping it across the other rope, coming back over itself, making an X, and then come around again and sending that tail up underneath the X, pulling that tail through, pushing up on the knot to cinch it down a little bit tighter.

Once you've tied the knot, to make sure it's tied properly, you're checking for five pairs of two ropes in your Figure 8. So right here I have two ropes coming into my knot. Two, two, two, two coming out. So that's one, two, three, four, five pairs of two. And if I flip the knot over, it should look exactly the same on the bottom. And with your safety knot, you should have an X on one side and an equal sign on the other. And even if you think about an X being the Roman numeral for 10, it's a little bit more redundancy to make sure that you have your 10 ropes or five pairs. And that is how to tie a Figure 8 knot Follow-Through with a Double Fisherman's.

These Climbers Are Terrified and You'll Be Terrified for Them | HARDXS from Slackjaw Film, Ep. 14



Gritstone, known to scientists as siliceous sandstone and to its British climbing devotees as 'God's own rock' is fiendishly difficult to climb. It requires a special, extremely esoteric style that relies on good friction as well as a strong stomach for long run-outs, terrible protection, and horrendous falls. There's a reason they call a proclivity for this sort of climbing 'grit madness'.

HARDXS follows four grit monkeys as they scare the living bejesus out of themselves on routes with names like Appointment with Death that are both difficult and desperately bold. Take a deep breath and click through, but beware, kids, this will either want to make you to climb grit, or keep you off it forever.

First Female Rock Climbing Ascent on Viaje de los Locos

Looking for some adventure in your day?
Professional rock climber Sasha DiGiulian and climbing partner Eduard Martin Garcia successfully ascended one of the hardest multi-pitch climbs in the world, tackling the 330 meter (1,082 ft) seven pitch climb known as “Viaje de los Locos” on the Italian island of Sardinia in the Gola di Gorropu National Park.

DiGiulian, 21, is the first female to ever to tackle this route, and with partner Garcia, only the second team in history to send it. It was originally climbed in 2002 by Dani Andrada and Dani Dulac and has not been repeated since.

Nalle Hukkataival, Magnus Midtbø, Stefano Ghisolfi, Jorg Verhoeven and Kajsa Rosen take on the challenge.

The route will stay on the wall for a long time, so if anyone fancies attempting to win the €5,000 topping out prize, get yourself to Stockholm.
