Ummm, NO! I can grab a couple pockets on the roof and pick my feet up off the ground with my fahtahss! What is that, the Paris Hilton of bouldering?

Looks good though!

Don't try it drool, there's no coming back from that. Your heart can't take it bro....

Step 1: See subject line. Step 2: Look at who the OP is. Step 3: Predict bitchy, arrogant meltdown. Step 4: Reap rewards.

edit: Heh. That girl went to my gym. I'm not sure she's legal yet, but she certainly gets the photo props. Can't figure out why ;).

Also, props to Ondra. Granite sport climbing can be so good. Probably more photogenic than the same-angled, featureless cliffs coming out of Spain (awesome to climb, I'm sure, just not exciting to watch).

Sorry survival, can't come up with another joke at the minute, my mind (or is it my hand?) is somewhere else....wow

V. if you took up limestone bouldering you'd get a lot more lycra clad goodness. Brah.

I always just thought it was recockulous her mom brought her in wearing that f me gear as a minor, a gaggle of bros queuing up to talk with her. Probably an accident or two in the gym parking lot. But if you saw mom, you'd get it.

"THAT GIRL" is a very talented climber AND smart business woman who is raking in the sponsorships from BIG companies (i.e. outside of the climbing world) and winning comps. And looking good while doing it.

Beta for the crux:
you need to take one really small hold, which is called "crimp", and you need to go into the shoulder move

With the beer prices in Norway you can safely assume that Tucker Tech will not go there to take the wind out of Adam's sails.

We get chastised for saying "that girl" about a young woman whose business acumen consists of dressing like a futuristic prostitute? Strange times.

Sometimes I wonder about this place...

http://sierrabc.com

Here's a recent article:

http://www.teenvogue.com/my-life/profiles/2012-09/rock-climber-sierra-blair-coyle/?intro

Sponsors include Roxy, Sanuk, Blue Water, etc.

She is working hard to get climbing admitted as an Olympic sport.

She dresses as many fit young women do at gyms. By no means is she a prostitute now or in the future.


Now let's get back to Adam... another amazing young talent.

She does have a Paris Hilton look. Hopefully she'll never get arrested for shop lifting her own climbing videos, harhar.

She and Ondra share a characteristic - their bodies don't seem to be the climbing archetype.

Oh gawd, not this again. I used to want that, but the more you think about it the more silly it seems.

I'd rather climbing remain out of the mainstream . . .
