1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Just insane, can you imagine how much finger and core strength this guy must have? He looks so damn casual too


    There's an extended video somewhere, and a 60 Minutes interview with him too, really interesting

    Alex Honnold is insane but 5.12 is pretty tough but isn't that difficult. Obviously, if you're free climbing, you're not going to send the toughest problems.

    One of the strongest boulderers:
    Daniel Woods

    Ashima Shiraishi is ridiculous:

    Chris Sharma, known as the best sport climber in the wold:

    Adam Ondra because...how can you be so strong yet so skinny...

    [VIDEO][/VIDEO]

    Like any seasoned athlete, they will make their sport look easy. This is no different. Climbing casually just comes from technique and extremely important in energy conservation; again, obviously crucial in free climbing.

    Well, I boulder instead of sport climbing for this reason. All you need are shoes, chalk and a day pass ($7-20). I consider this immensely more fun than the gym and you get a fun workout. Sport climbing requires certification, ropes, cams, harness, etc. and it can get pricey. People at all the climbing gyms I've been to are extremely nice, laid back and always willing to teach. The reason I go back is for the environment.

    Plus, no gymbros. Okay, I lied. There are gym bros that come to show off the to climbing hunniez. But it's funny when they get outclimbed by even the kids.

    As a Parisian, I approve. My son's just 7 but he's a real monkey. He loves to hit the rocks there.

    Awesome, we lived right next to the forest in Veneux-Les-Sablons, my dad used to bring me out there all the time on his motocross bike, great place to grow up.

    Just a pair of LL Bean hunting boots. I wax them pretty regularly and they're great for stuff like that.

    Hehe just a fjörð, the glaciers are a bit further north, the mountains are in the way.

    Yeah, I should probably update that seeing as how I haven´t left the Nordic countries in over a year...

    I try ;) Even got yelled at last weekend for "pretending to be foreign to pick up chicks". I'd call that successful integration.
