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!

4 Knots Every Climber Should Know | Climbing Daily Ep.991

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).

Rock Climbing Technique For Beginners : Static VS Dynamic Styles

This Episode of Rock Climbing Technique explains the Pros, Cons and Applications of Static and Dynamic Climbing Styles in the usual demonstrative, information dense format. I will go into detail about definition, execution, advantages and disadvantages, as well as potential applications. Remember: There is no superior rock climbing technique or style, they all have their strengths and weaknesses, and you as a climber have to choose them according to the problem you're facing.
As always, please don't forget to drop some likes and opinions if you've got something from this video, it helps a lot, and I'll see you soon in the next one!

We're Not Going Up There Are We? | Extreme E-Bike Climbing Challenge: The Rock

Chris and Steve are no strangers to a steep, complicated and technical climb on an E-Bike. Having already tested themselves and their EMTB's on the unforgiving gradients of The Slab, we sent them to Wales for their next extreme e-bike climbing challenge. Welcome to the Rock!

Subscribe:
Our shop:

The Rock is exposed, horribly technical and has sheer drops and loose shale on top of jagged rock faces. It makes the Slab look smooth and tame in comparison. The Slab had a steady average gradient of 75% (37 degrees), whilst our latest challenge has pitches of 41 degrees, dark caves, sheer drops and loose shale.

Just what exactly is an E-Bike capable of? We want to push the boundaries….

World's Hardest Route Vs World's Best Climbers | Climbing Daily Ep.878

Last weekend Climbing Daily was at the Klattercentret Telefonplan gym in Stockholm for the Black Diamond Project event. The idea is simple; build the hardest indoor sports route in the world, and get the worlds best climbers to try it. We were there to capture all of the action. 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.

Silence

What it takes to climb the world’s first 9c? Let’s find out in Silence, a movie by Bernardo Giménez. It shows what preceded the afternoon of September 3, 2017 when Adam Ondra, a professional rock climber and currently one of the best climbers in the world, made a little piece of climbing history when he climbed his project in the spectacular Hanshelleren Cave in Norway. The route, later named Silence, received a new grade of 9c and became the hardest route in the world.

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.
