I'm sure I remember seeing a youtube clip of Huffy doing 1-5-9 static, but I can't find it.

I leave a white and turbid wake; pale waters, paler cheeks, where'er I sail. The envious billows sidelong swell to whelm my track; let them; but first I pass.

Huffy was shocking, mad to think he didn't do much harder than 8a although he did do a lot of them. Miss you big boy

I've never been impressed with feats of strength.
What does impress you, feats of balance?

What the fuck, we're climbers not slackliners. Climbing ability. You don't see Ondra showing off his one-finger one-armers do you?

I saw a TV program where massive guys pulled cars along and waddled about carrying giant concrete balls once.

there's the vid of huffy doing hurricane static somewhere on...

I think that mike Gardner filmed that? Don't know where it's online. So inspiring, yet demoralising...

that's not strictly true. She had to give me a lift back in with my tally-wacker as I had one arm in a sling and the other wasn't strong enough on its own

What like this guy?  ;)

I met him Moab at his house (weirdly I was helping to build a wooden offwidth) and as well as being a fucking great slackliner, he was quite handy on the woody too!

I remember watching 'the world's strongest man' on telly and one of the atlas stones had broken, fortunately clm was a spectator at the event and offered his head as a replacement atlas stone which saved the day. Nice one clm

To be fair just stumbled into this, there doesnt seem to be a huge amount of ondra skills going on here.. in fact he looks like he'd be better off without his legs... and just one armin the lot.. but he cant one arm or can he, surely he can, freak idy freak
