Hi,
 I just finish a new video about our ascent on Tempest in october 2001
 Was a long time since I saw these images? how many memories?
 
There are a lot of new images about Bruce Bindner.
We spent 10 days on the wall? ( was our vacation )... in the links below there is about an hour of video ... worth seeing it?
 
Tempest part 1 https://vimeo.com/46666449
 
Tempest part 2 https://vimeo.com/46674139
 
Tempest part 3 https://vimeo.com/46675530
 

below a very nice piece written by Bruce

Cheers

and an extra gri gri!


lol


sorry, Mark. Had to.

:)


Now I just need to see whether I want to do another bout with a attempting a solo.  Didder and Cobble and your solos have me thinking about it.  But I surprised myself how easy it was to convince myself to not keep going on the Prow.

serious raiding party action?


lol


Mark,
24 count of bud light lime?  Turns out if you wrap them in climbing tape they are less likely to puncture and leak. But wasting that much climbing tape on sugar water is an exercise in throwing away good money after bad. lol

I have No idea what you're goin' on about right now.
As for the rest........I can dig it. Hey, my closest bro's are the first ascentionists.
Nicely done, Valerio. Damn good to see Brutus Of Wyde in his Element.
Glorious area of The Wall. Brad had the Vision, huh?

Well, I don't drink anymore so I don't need to haul proof my beer cans. Not drinking beers saves me a lot of weight too...

Sometimes the difference between a layman and a journeyman is simply what he is allowed to believe himself to be.

I'd like to see where this route goes in relation to the upper part of the PO. How close? How far?

That sounds like a real aid route.

Place your own heads-check
Place your own pins-check
Fairly obscure (non supertopo topo)-check
Not blown out-check
Tatless lower-outs-check:)

Kinda one of those routes, you may or may not get done, well if your a mortal.

Bone, whats the hold up? Seems like the next step?  Having a psyched partner is damn near half the work!

Yeah I guess...

He's a go getter but this will be his first wall (not a mortal). And wants to do Tempest for all the reasons listed above....
