5 out of 5 stars nice one Derek, you ought to post a trailer for the Teton vid as a sort of teaser!
-
Actually, he is leading; he just didn't feel the need to place any gear for the first 2/3rds of the pitch!
-
5 out of 5 stars great job! I enjoyed reliving some of those routes.
-
3 out of 5 stars annoying voice, fun route. I remember climbing it on Easter morning once and found chocolate eggs left on top!
-
5 out of 5 stars the top is lay-back or chicken-wings, lower it's mostly fists!
-
5 out of 5 stars andrew- ok- I have some specialized passive gear I'd like to try!
-
Are you belaying AND video taping? That's just CRAZY!
--just kidding, it looks beautiful there!
-
I wish I understood Portuguese!

hey Tyler- yeah first pitch is classic Sedona 5.9 (ie: serious for anyone not used to it), 2nd pitch is pretty exposed and steep up thru roof then traverse 30ft (5.8), third goes at 10b/c thin steep hands (maybe harder this always feels pretty good to me), lastly 10c/d fingers to OW.
-
I wish the first sequence was closer/clearer; great clips/beta on the rest. You should come to Sedona, we have some nice OW, too.

nice, looks like fun!

5 out of 5 stars Tierra Infirma-
aesthetic peak, arduous suffering!
2pm start-approached via Pamelia Lk trail head (elev.3,000ft) to Milk Creek to PCT (head south) about a mile to the first major gully. followed poor climbers trail up steep to approx 5,600ft -camped still in trees with about 50% snow coverage at this point. 6am start- low temps only to the 40's caused loose snow conditions- post-holing and kick stepping interspersed with loose scree stumbling. As I live at 7,000ft I expected to find this climb easier but instead it seemed and enormous amount of work. upper slopes involved postholing thigh deep and burring your axe and hand and forearm. 1pm- we debated at the "red saddle" (completely white for us) & decided because of the exposed traverse and poor snow conditions as well as the worsening weather that we should skip the remaining 330ft and descend. glissaded as much as possible, broke camp and back to the car by 8:30pm, Good Beer and Pizza at "sammy's" in Detroit Lake.

4 out of 5 stars looks like fun!

yes, I regret the banner was a bedsheet, unfortunately it did not hold up with the 50+mph wind. BTW tadTrad CFC's were outlawed in the 80's, Aerosol cans are now safe for the ozone. who's cluelsess?
-
sed & subjax- you both are right. Actually we had considered ridding bikes to the crag- then again a healthy Earth may reoccur 10,000 yrs after the human race is gone. glad I'm living now and not a 100yrs from now.
-
3 out of 5 stars good footage/stills, however I find the foto-album transitions distracting. nice job though.
-
4 out of 5 stars nicely done!

3 out of 5 stars ruta hermosa, que dificil?
-
4 out of 5 stars thanks, looks like a fun day!
-
5 out of 5 stars It's hard to lead-belay/climb and video at the same time. hence the TR vids.

5 out of 5 stars Tfish, film your own porn, climb your own cracks, & keep your negative comments to yourself!
This problem is rad and the finish is rather thin when barefoot.
