I'm a bit confused by the trailer posted above. Is this film about the first ascent or the second ascent?

The footage on the climb is from the second ascent.
However, they also interview the first ascent guys as a background to understand about the climb.
[see Ammon's answer below, though - he knows more about it than I do!]

I'll paraphrase [from the trailer]...

"When I first saw El Cap, when I was about 13 years old, I said to myself, 'I have to do a first ascent on that'"

Really? When I was 13, I said to myself, "I'd like to see Mary Beth's boobs."

And at 13, Mary Beth's chest was probably more featured.

(That's 8 bumps that can be attributed to my smart ass, not including Mary Beth's. You are welcome.)

Looks really good guys.
The book was very good.
This looks equally as honest!

Assault on El Capitan?

I prefer to think of it as meditating WITH El Capitan.....HA!

I do agree that the title is unfortunate. Rather than assaulting El Cap I think they were more like slab whisperers.

I was a little confused with the title in the beginning, as well. I believe it doesn't have anything to do with assaulting El Cap. It's the assault to the FA team on El Cap... but, I could be wrong.

Both ascents.

Well this is a slippery slope that can never reach any level of resolution. So I will stay out of a debate about the title. At least on a forum. Catch me in Yosemite or at a screening and we can have a beer and discuss it all.

"If I had read the (Wings of Steel) part, I never would have clicked it. "

F*#k yeah dude, it's hard to read more than 4 words in a row in a title. My advise is to stick to the Weschrist reader (below) wherein you only have 3 words max (including those pesky commas and you can skip the last line there with 4 words) and preaching angry leftist politics which you seem so assured is correct to the unwashed on Dr F's "Why republicans are lame thread". Leave being an intellectual to your betters (ie, everyone else).







I'm with Mike Fredricks who noted:
"I think the story is compelling in many ways."
Not the least of which was that all the mechrist/haters of the world with their petty opinions were weighing in on Supertopo about the FA much like they were preaching politics to the great unwashed, when Ammon quietly went up, did it, and shut them all up. Thus ending the 2nd lamest climbing thread to ever be started on ST. #1) see Sean Jones/Doug Robinson Half Dome experience: alternatively titled "Why climbing is good but we never post on Supertopo". - sadly.

I propose a name change for this film: "Ammon: Man of action or man of Steel?" LOL. Anyone else have a title suggestion?

Uhhhhhhh. . . the title. . . it's all about the use of the preposition, ON. . . not OF!

Pretty basic use of the English language, eh?

A N D . . . about mechrist, he needs help changing his diaper . . . he's had poopy pants for a very, very long time!

Kudos Ammon and Mary.... Kudos. Not just for getting on it but for getting to the truth of the hatefest.



Looks all too familiar. At least the lower p's.


I will wait for the dvd to see how much of the lower section "evolved".










Amazing how a pastime such as we do turned into a form of "local" jihad and hate. You figure that after the WOML debacle, some would have learned. Nope.


SAD to say the least at some of the admissions that have come out regarding the FA and FA Team (Richard and Mark) since the SA. All over a stinking route....

In the film trailer are many goatee wearing people.

In order to do hard El Cap assaulting one must first get goatee and beer?

I don't know why you all try to provoke me here. There are plenty of other threads to ruin with this crap. I mean why would you want to ruin Ammon's thread? He got some free bumps from one harmless smart ass comment. Bring it on fukheads... I can ruin any thread... I got nothing to lose.
