Blow-torching Traversty
November 28, 2012, 07:18:56 pm
There's a lovely little video on 8a.nu called Vastervik Bouldering. Check out Carlo Traversi blow-torching holds around the 26.30 mark. I would post a photo but I don't have a clue of how to do it.

Needless to say - what a wanker. Does climbing hard blocs mean you don't have to worry about fucking the rock up for others? Or is it OK because the rock your trashing isn't in the US of A so you're not worried? What a great role-model........the stunted, buffant retard

Blowtorching? Have we travelled back to the nineties and no-one told me?

Actually, that would explain why people are grumbling about kneepads I suppose.

What a knob Traversi is. Everyone knows tampons work better anyway.

That's criminal, people don't think the same tho. Why someone would put it in a bouldering film is beyond me, but most things are

No. I left a comment on his blog asking if his sponsors found rape jokes funny too. And a link to the UKB thread. To his credit, he did respond promptly.

hardly on the same level really is it?

i saw this video a bit ago and thought it seemed a bit extreme, assumed it might be local practice, perhaps not. even if it is acceptable on a local level it seems entirely stupid having it on the net.

thankfully they can be washed off easily.

I saw the blue touching on a trailer for that and left s comment questioning it in the video itself. Not checked if there is a response yet though (and currently on my phone so to lazy to check).

Reckon they could do a video of a famous climber being jumped by a random animal for blowtorching holds like the gorilla video? Should be a series of them...

I posted a comment on Vimeo and encourage others to do so. It's important, I don't want that climbers start thinking that it's a brave and humble behaviour.

Shameful behaviour
