Under an hour to the top of the Roman Chimneys, by yourself ?

There should be some notation associated with that...

Riley. Quit being fat and bitter. Some people are bad ass. You are not. Go for a jog or something. I would say eat a snickers but I doubt that would help.

LOL!! Now that's solid. At least I'm only fat.

I think Rilleey is on to something. Let's all bash on Tammie Nite. Stupid rat drawrer. Cat pedder. Used to climb a lot then joined a circus. Jerk.

the "record" in the thread title seems a bit over the top.


"Speed climbing "El Cap" is also popular. The RECORD for the Nose has changed hands several times in the past few years. The RECORD currently belongs to Alex Honnold and Hans Florine, who broke the previous RECORD by almost 13 minutes, with a time 2:23.46 on June 17, 2012.[24]

On November 6, 2010, Dean Potter and Sean Leary established the previous RECORD at 2:36.45, breaking the old RECORD held by Hans Florine and Yuji Hirayama by a mere 20 seconds.[25] Prior to that, the Huber brothers (Alexander and Thomas) held the RECORD time of 2:45.45 (2007).[26]

There are more than 100 different routes on El Capitan and most of them have some kind of speed RECORD attached to them. Ammon McNeely owns the most RECORDS on El Cap, 23 RECORDS in total, 13 of them being First One Day Ascents."





Grand wall is no different than the nose in the fact that people continuously improve on the time taken to climb it.

What word do you suggest I use to indicate a faster time was achieved if using the word record is over the top.

How's this,

Someone climbed the Grand wall faster than anyone else before and on the last pitch he climbed over the top

The word "record" suits Yosemite just fine Harry. I think in Squamish, we are more "cassette tape" or "lazer disk" maybe.

Yeah! Tammy Night is a stupid bird-doo head. I already called her "toilet face" on another thread. And she never climbed anything anyway, or even knew anybody who soloed anything.

But just for Riley's information, I saw Ms. Knight pop a crampon off her boot while soloing a steep ice runnel at the top of a 3,000-foot face in the middle of a f*#king Force 8 winter storm. I don't think there are a lot of people who would have survived that, but she's still here. (And it wasn't me who saved her -- I was below, and had the rope in my pack. She was totally on her own with that one.)

G'Dammit, all that hunting around for Riley's post and it's not even here anymore?

Well, I guess folks saved the crux of it for us anyway.

Does this mean that Tami's tougher than Riley is, cuz her sh#t is still here?

Anyway, hat's off to the dude that climbed fast.
Keep it real.

He was angry at Tami for "enabling" a young person to do something dangerous, and said she had no right to an opinion. Something like "when was the last time you climbed, let alone soloed."

No big deal. Just business as usual on Supertoprope.

That DOES help. He wanted to wait until the time changed from 10:32 to 10:33, but couldn't wait that long. I laughed at that because I know the feeling. Also because Marc-Andre is a funny, high-energy, knows-what's-important guy.

relic = troll





in 2010, a touron asked in el cap meadow:
why do people do something so dangerous , so crazy?
climbing el cap that is.
i answered: why do athletes compete in the olympics, why do soldiers go to war?
ok, i get your point, he said.

for those among you who understand the gap between the general public and the el cap climber, it shouldn't be too hard to understand the gap between you and alex honnold, mason earle, or marc.

.... unless you re a taco touron that is.
