It appears that it was steroids that allowed Sylvester to accomplish his climbing feats in the famous movie Cliffhanger. Read below RE the fall of a climbing legend.

The Age writes:
"CUSTOMS officials raided actor Sylvester Stallone's harbourside room at Sydney's Park Hyatt Hotel yesterday, as members of his party were seen throwing objects out of the window.
Stallone had already denied bringing steroids into Australia after he was questioned at Sydney Airport on Friday.
It is believed customs officers visited Stallone, 60, about 3pm, and gave him a summons relating to prohibited substances. A summons normally requires him or his lawyer to appear in court..............."

Stallone has denied having steroids and no case has gone to court yet, let alone been proven.

The statement "It appears that it was steroids that allowed Sylvester to accomplish his climbing feats in the famous movie Cliffhanger" could well be libellous. If the moderators are smart they should remove it post haste.

Well it is a tentative statement of sorts.
But he is still my climbing idol despite all this. Hopefully its not true...

search for stallone+steroids on google and it brings up 117,000+ hits. I don't think we need to worry that
much.

From memory it was Ron Kauk & Wolfgang Gullich - John Long and David Breshears were also involved.
The section where you see stallone 'climbing' he was acually anchorred to the cliff.
Anyway that guy from Mission Impossible totally outcranks him on bouldery stuff.

Personally, I loved the bolt gun. Now, where to get one of those suckers...

Interesting technique, soloing up a cliff and randomly blasting a bolt into the wall?
The recoil on such a cannon would surely rip the arms off anyone with lesser guns than stallone.
God I love hollywood such attention to detail, and so much research into logistics of climbing.
The realisism of that harness buckle melting under the static load of 65kg love interest, lesson don't wear
golfing gloves on a tirolene traverse, its just suicide!
vertical limit was slightly better, but still woefull! I think the script writers must be on steroids.
