so i read that this dude called Rashad from India invented rock climbing.

is this true? here is an exerpt i cut and pasted from a CNN report on it and it was also printed in my local newspaper.


Rashad Malikal Tahali has recently been acknowledged by both the Guinness Book of Records and the popularly used online resource 'wikipedia' as the inventor of rock climbing. Born in 1968 and hailing from a remote area of India, Rashad took to climbing the local mountainous features as a youth before fully developing the techniques and rules that define modern climbing today. Rock climber Chuck 'the stone' Jacobs had this to say about Rashad.

"well he's an absolute legend in the sport. None of us would be climbing today if it was not for him. Heck he invented the whole belay system."

Rashad continues to live in a remote area of India and continues to climb to this day. To Rashad we say, congratulations and keep on climbing.

You might be right. I seem to remember that rock climbing prior to 1968 was unheard of.

whow. settle down a bit guys i actually read this. im posting it here cause it didnt seem rite. here are some links

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rashadrockclimbing

http://search.cnn.com/...=true/rashadinventor

I hear the reason it has gotten controversials as to who inventd rock climbn is because Rashad's son is apparantly put in a patent application on a number of belay systems. he wants to charge climbers who belay.

Rashad Tahili is one of the great old hardmen of the past. There is really very little written about him and he is rather unknown and obscure compared to some of the climbing legends people are more familar with. This may be because he was climbing largely out of India rather than the West back in the day.

as to his inventing rock climbing this is obviously untrue. However, what is true is that recently his son has submitted a patent application in the US claiming ownership over several commonly used belay systems he claims Rashad invented.

I hope that, at least, you're using a different computer/network for this trolling account and your other account, so the mods cannot track who you are by your IP.

Doesn't seem to be much of a problem... I'm juggling about five accounts using the same internet provider and e-mail domain. I haven't been shut down or banzed yet.

I think one of my accounts is banzed from The Lab, but that's it. Trolling is prohibited in that forum. I can respect that.

Did he utilize the ULTIMATE TRAINING PROGRAM for the steep angles?

I have never even heard of "the stone" either. Sounds like they tried their hardest to make a hardcore climber nick name to trick all the morons out there. You are a retard for even contemplating posting this.

rockclimbing.com wouldn't exist without the internet, and therefore rockclimbing would also not exist without rockclimbing.com.

I never thought of it that way. That means that Ghore invented porn-0 too...the man is a Super Genius. (right up there with Ray Jardine, the inventor of Cams)
