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

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

[/url]

Haven't you heard? Ondra's weak!

Check out this 70 year old dude:



As the comments say, you would have thought he'd just put on a hat the way the crowd responds. I'd be happy if I have my own teeth and don't have to shit in a bag at that age let alone pull off those crazy moves.

These guys performed the most jaw dropping feats of strength I have ever seen. And from 5:13 to the end the strength of feet is pretty incredible.

These



Here's the one finger handstand. He's not balancing but I think all his weight (what there is of it) is really on one finger.


Climbing a rope with one arm


and this (not climbing related)

Use the full URL (as opposed to the shortened version) and it will embed automagically....



Dominic LaCasse probably deserves a mention...

the bald guy with the funky lycra is Tazio, a guy I know, he's going for the world record of pull ups in one minute.
he's a monster, I wonder what he could do if he actually climbed. I met him one day, he was working a problem that he later did, "Il Signore degli Anelli" 8a+. I'm pretty sure it's the only problem he's done, but what a problem!!!
really nice guy with a lycra fetish.

Top off + beany on = dick

Yeah....
But that kinda campusing buys you quite allot of "Being a Dick" rights...

And Cavesso's tights?

NO!

Not even one finger, one armers justify those! :ohmy:

There was a guy called Dave Barrell in Sheff in the 80's, he had been fasting for a week, rolled up at the Broomgrove gym after a day ice climbing on Kinder and cranked off 3 or 4 consecutive one finger one armers pretty much without a warm up. He was a beast.

Forgot about Dave (Burrell). I lived with him for a time. His training partner was Mike Meysner - also capable of similar beastly feats

I remember Dave but pretty certain it was Barrell (not Burrell) but not pronounced like 'barrel' as in beer. Bit of Hyacinth Bucket thing. All completely irrelevant. He was certainly strong though.

that's right. i once saw a video of vandeputte one arm campusing... that was something more like flying between rungs. not only the power was clearly there but also a whole lot of body coordination. can't find it anymore.

This one Nib's???
Maybe not but it certianly has one arm campusing and does rank on the rank lycra scale....


This montage just about sums up this thread....
