I think I missed that piece or pieces, unless it's just a strain that runs through most of his stuff that I haven't picked up on?

Most of the dumbest things he has said has been social media comments.

i've been reading a ton of articles on this lately and every single time i open one up and see some pictures my hands get insanely sweaty because of how second-hand nerve-racking this is.

Slung a tree behind the boulder and rappelled in. The rope running over a slopping lip isn't ideal but since I use retired top ropes from our gym for this purpose, I am not too concerned with quickly wearing out my line. I didn't have a rope solo setup with me so I was just on a grigri. It means you can only do a few moves at a time then have to pull the rope tight manually but it works to decipher sequences.

i was bummed because the last time i went climbing i fell a ton on stuff i wasn't having trouble with before and my toes hurt a lot, but i went climbing today and figured out if i make the strap really tight around like the top of my foot then there is less pressure on my toes, and then i shredded it today and i feel like a golden god

also gazedo that looks fun as hell i want to deep water solo so bad

Shoes are the only peice of gear in climbing that matters. Everything else you can have the shittiest mad rock version of and still perform at your peak level. Unfortunately it means I spend hundreds of dollars a year on rubber.

I climb at my local gym in BK, mostly boulder as I still haven't done the balay certification and autobalay routes are generally shit. I haven't gone in a couple of months because of a swollen middle toe (from tennis) but when I was going consistently I'd boulder V6s. I have never really climbed outdoors and would love to try one day.
