Basic Aid Climbing Leading Technique - How To Big Wall Climb

A companion to the book How To Big Wall Climb which details how to go from the very basics to the summit of El Capitan.

Minimalist Aid Climbing

A set of aid ladders, 2 fifi hooks and a handful of draws.

No Climbing Shoes.

An aid route was bolted years ago at our local crag for the purposes of running a clinic through a regional gym. After a few clinics, the route was more or less abandoned on the wall. While we may not have intended to do any aiding that day, the minimal gear we had demanded an attempt. Time to put those practice wall sessions to the test, rotten bolts or not.

@gunkclimber is certainly better at it then I am.

Of Rocks And Needles: A Documentary On Climbing And Medical Aid

WARNING: This film may contain some scenes that people may find disturbing



For the past decade the German doctor Volker Schoeffl and his wife Isabelle have been coming to Laos. The country, squeezed in between Thailand, Vietnam and Cambodia is one of the poorest in the world. Once a year the two doctors perform difficult operations, teach and support the local team and bring new equipment to the hospital. Not only do they work though. Both are astonishing climbers and so they spend their free time setting up new routes all across the country.

My First Time Aid Climbing

The following is my second time aid climbing and the first time lead aiding. The route is about 80ft and took me ~3hr including setting up two anchors just so we can practice hauling and hanging belay.

This was training for an attempt at the West Face of the Matterhorn in Northeast Oregon Eagle Cap Wilderness.
