i would find this more credible if it was about Tom Crean

unfortunatley, it will probably be the victim and her family who are afraid to step out of their apartments

while burke was certainly in possession of a good deal of grit, it paled in comparison to his other attributes. i think in this context grit almost has to imply a lack of raw talent that trey had in spades.
now excuse me while i go watch highlights of the kansas game for the ~400th time.

pretty sure most of the guys on here would be totally ok with getting beat up by her since that would imply being in the same room as her.

i'm sorry, but this comment just had to be down-voted. it's so much funnier that way.

ugh, i just participated in a DP... what a horrible mistake
|8 weeks 3 days ago||maybe we should read into||
maybe we should read into this a little more so we can definitively declare that marrow is, in fact, the spawn of satan himself.
or maybe, just maybe, instead of disparaging a man's character for the flimsiest of reasons, we could just let this shit go and be happy as hell that jim fucking harbaugh is now the head coach of michigan footbal?

hey, thanks for playing though! maybe come back and try again when you're not a horrible person.
|10 weeks 5 days ago||funny you bring up sharma||
funny you bring up sharma since he came out to yosemite last year and worked on the dawn wall with tommy and kevin, but never heard a thing about him sending any pitches those two hadn't already...
|10 weeks 5 days ago||you're comparing apples and||
you're comparing apples and oranges dude. while i have a huge amount of respect for honnold, i hate that there's this notion that free-soloing is the ultimate form of climbing now, due mostly to him. you don't need to risk dying to make a notable climb.
|10 weeks 5 days ago||that's 30 feet of 12d||
that's 30 feet of 12d climbing, which is absurd without a rope, but there are at least 15 pitches harder than that on the dawn wall.

I kinda doubt it. Aren't the Piolet d'Ors more for alpinism/adventure climbing? There was nothing fast or light about this ascent, though more than enough badassery.
I think Caldwell probably stands a better chance of getting it for his Patagonia traverse with Honnold.
|10 weeks 6 days ago||I doubt an established||
I doubt an established professional would devote the time to repeating this route because like you said, the amount of dedication it takes is absurd. And just look at the Nose, it's had 5 ascents in the ~25 years since it was established free. Crux pitches are like 13d and 14a on that right? Dawn Wall has 9 or 10 pitches that hard. That's just crazy to think about. You'd have to free the Nose just as part of your training regime...
|10 weeks 6 days ago||it's so strange to see this||
it's so strange to see this story pop up on non-climbing websites. goes to show what an amazing accomplishment this is. so what's the line on when this gets repeated? at least a decade, right??
|10 weeks 6 days ago||eh, the definition of a||
eh, the definition of a successful free climb gets pretty murky on a big wall. the important part was that they climbed every pitch free (at some point).

As a climber, I would learn to embrace it and respond to "Why do you climb?" with either "Because it's there" or "I have a crippling fear of walking uphill, so I must propel myself upwards with my popeye-esque forearms!"
