Climbing SPRAY / Re: making hemp rope the old way
« Last post by cottonside on July 06, 2022, 11:34:23 am »
I watched a movie, I think at the Banff traveling film festival, about a couple of Swiss climbers who climbed the Eiger in the early 00s, in the style of the FA from the 1930s.  They gathered up some old gear, recreated other stuff, and went for it.

here's a clip, the full movie I saw was probably 30 mins or more.

If you can do harder on a top rope, there is still room to improve your head.


i dont think is is quite true as leading requires clipping draw let alone setting gear these requirements adds to the difficulty of any route as compared to top roping it...
