Can a filmed event be considered "extreme" if the film crew is safe?

David Lama, like Tony Haward of BP, just wants his life back.

A skilled political statement for a 19 year old. One wonders,..

Thanks Michael.



Perhaps it is only right that the Torre persists in its role as a lightning rod for unbridled ambition.

Boycott Red Bull(shit) until they make a full public apology, renounce plans to continue the project and vow to clean up their mess.

If little David wants to slay the Alpine Golliath then let him do it on his own dime and without the circus of corporate whoring.

Yes I did, THREE TIMES! I got no indication that it went through. The site kept returning me to start over.

So how many bolts were added to the route and how many off to the side for the film crew? It was unclear to me.

Funny though, History repeats itself with a controversy about tactics and bolts on the compressor route.

Karl. According to Rolando, well over 50 new bolts added. Almost all of them next to natural pro and many within arm's reach of the route.

Whatever the reason for or the posistion of the new bolts, the fact remains that arguably the world's most beautiful mountain is sporting more unneeded, unsightly human artifacts. Arguments are made that the Compressor Route is historically significant, a lot of human history is deplorable.

I does not surprise me, that nobody speaks another lenguage in the US, and can not read what Rolando wrote, what do you call someone that speaks 3 lengauges, polyglot, someone that speaks 2 lenguages, bilingual, someone that speaks only one lenguage....a gringo !
