"...Fifty-nine-year-old Lee Sheftel has redpointed The Whole Shot (5.14a) at the enormous Pipe Dream cave of Maple Canyon, Utah. Sheftel worked on the route for 16 days over about two and a half months, finding two cruxes near the end of this endurance testpiece: a throw to a crimp at the third to last bolt, followed by a stretch of small, sloping holds.

A major figure in New Mexico climbing before moving to Colorado, Sheftel had previously climbed a couple of 5.13d routes two years ago at Rifle, Colorado. I have mixed feelings on working a route so hard, he wrote in an email. I can only do so once in a while, but, having said that, its a pretty cool process....'

'...QLD: Death-lead Flange Desire (27) repeated by Pinnacle Sports


On Sunday 10 July, Duncan Steel repeated the fearsome Frog Buttress corner and arte route, Flange Desire (27). He hadnt even toproped it cleanly before tying in for the lead, and to make matters worse, hed just stopped his climbing partner Grant Edser a metre from the ground after a horrifying, gear-ripping, 15m upside-down plunge on the same route.

The route is notorious for its terrible protection. It has one rusty piton down low, and another up high. Between these, the only option is a few tiny wires. Grant pulled a #1 and #2 RP during his fall, and the DMM peanut that pulled him up trenched down the seam and was threatening to come all of the way out. Grant suggested putting the RPs back in before Duncans lead but he declined, saying he would prefer to simply run it out rather than having pieces in he knew would fail. The resulting runout was about six metres over the questionable peanut.

Afterwards, Duncan said While climbing it, Id resigned myself to dying. I thought, Ive had a great life up to this point, and if I die now, Im okay with that. That was the way I could maintain calm while I was climbing it. ...'

Maybe Dunky shoulda said this on video , BEFORE , stepping into the c--kpit of his 747 Desire for Flange .......... are there really 30 virgin girlyz waiting in heaven for them ? ...

Some irony here ... had you been wearing a helmet when you were bashing ur head against the rock , 'that time' , you might be dead now , cos the helmet would have cushioned and smuthered ur survival tactic ...

'...Pulled out the two wires that I'd determined fit perfectly in the placements. For some reason, they didn't. Shit. Panic. Fighting the pump, wires won't go in, start overgripping, increasing the pump. If I fall now I'll hit the ground. Now overwhelming panic. Entire body shaking. A small crowd has gathered in shocked silence. Elbows start to rise, I'm coming off. I can feel tears forming in the corners of my eyes and my chest feels like it's being squeezed. I begin to bang my forehead against the rock repeatedly. This is my way of forcing myself to calm down...'

'...just as long as I enjoy it! There's much more of an emphasis on people staying fit as they age, and I think climbing is a great sport for that. Walking to the crag you get some aerobic fitness, climbing gives you muscular strength. So yeah, I can see myself climbing for a long time. One of my best friends died rock climbing at the age of 67 - Dennis Kemp. He was leading grade 20 and seconding grade 23 stylishly, at the age of 67. He's an inspiration...'

"We are staing in St.Leger now wild camping.It is fun we have a big group 1 australian girl,2 guys from New Zeland it is so good to know more about different people.We climb all the day long . Today we have a rest day some of our guys went to Nice and we are now in Avinion with Patxi Usobiaga , girl from Spain and girl from Australia . First we went to small city Carpentras and we got to a very strange situation there . In the entrance we have asked some people about enternet cafe(they were marocian) and they told us they can show where it is . We followed their car and finaly we arrived to a narrow street, we parked there and went towards internet point , australian girl have shaked the hand of a guy who we followed for and he gave me his hand to shake but i have not done it because i did not like him and he asked me ,,,you dont like me , i helped you and you dont want to shake my hand,,, he was realy agressive and he started to say very bad things to me . i am sure he would be ready to fight with me ... Of course we desided to leave imediatly and we have noticed some guys near our car , they left write in the moment when we set in the car ... And we desided to go to Avinion for internet , thats the way it is ... "
