I keep hoping that someone will do something noteworthy, but it would appear that no significant climbs have been completed since Sharma did "Stoking the Fire" and Ondra did "The Change" back in February.

Seems more appropriate to Sport forum than to Injuries and Accidents. I moved it.

If he's referring to the website as a whole, I think Injuries and Accidents is quite appropriate.

Or maybe the In Memorium forum.

Climbing-wise, I recovered from major shoulder surgery and pushed my redpoint level up to 12c. To me, these were significant, but you won't see them on the front page of RC.com. (These are a bit pedestrian, don't you think?)

My point is that I actually do enjoy reading about SharmaGrahamOndraCaldwellDegulianEtcEtcEtc's latest heroics in ChinaSpainAfricaYosemiteEtcEtcEtc. Climbing at that level and in those locations is beyond me (just like running a sub-4:00 mile), but I enjoy reading about it just the same.

What I'm sayin' is that the RC.com headlines are stale! Let's get some new material up there!

RC.com has headlines? People actually read them?
Who knew?

Every mod is too busy deleting spam posts and blocking spambots.
