This is exactly what enhances the reputation of climbers.
Bee-stung climber who fell identified: UPI.com
Joshua Ruzsa, 19, died while climbing Camelback Mountain in Phoenix.
I want to go to back to school at Twente University in Enschede, Netherlands because it has a new dorm with a big-ass super cool exterior climbing wall.
That. Just. Rocks.
It’s not a record length of time on Yosemite’s most recognized block of granite, but it sure demonstrates determination.
Tommy Caldwell tried for more than two weeks to beat the Dawn Wall and it didn’t make it. So yeah, it’s hard as hell.
Rock climbing is a sport in which pain and frustration tend to serve only to motivate. Torn hands, shredded forearms and gnarled toes, unnoticed along the way, appear only a few hours later in camp, the bar or in Caldwell’s case, when comfortably secure in a port-a-ledge next to your wife. You realize then that those small cuts and bruises and punches to your ego are meager reminders of what fueled you from the beginning. They become trophies. Exhaustion is your summit flag. And then it’s on to the next one, fingers be damned.
GrindTV has the gist of Caldwell’s attempt.
