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...

Or a gorilla jumping a famous climber and then getting medieval on him with a blowtorch. I can nominate a few.

The comments on vimeo make for good reading! Made me chuckle anyway, think Carlo will be locking his doors at night from now on, looks like there is a lynch mob forming online.  :chair:

I'm fucking hopeless at posting I am however very disappointed to see people that do this..



On that particular site there is a handy list on the right of the picture, simply click on the text next to "IMG code" and it copies the code for embedding it to your clipboard, then when you're back on the UKB tab ready to paste it in, position the cursor and press 'Ctrl +v' et voila

Keep posting - just put something on 8a.poo about the deleting/air brushing.

looks to be leaving comments on vimeo

Quote from: Bearcam Media
I don't condone any of the blow torching and I can in no way be held responsible for the actions in the video, I was there to document and did not encourage the torching.

I sent a couple of emails to Planetmountain.com and other climbing websites to report the video and the censorship.
I'm really pissed and would like to contact Five Ten to let them know who they sponsor.

In case its deleted like other comments heres what I just posted...

Huh, where did my question about the blow-torching go?

The "I'm just the messenger" argument you are trying to use above is poor because as the 'messenger' in this instance you do have a responsibility to portray to viewers how to treat the rock that we all climb on and share.  How many who don't know any better will have seen the blow-torching and thought to themselves "Hey, now theres a way I can dry my project/problem quickly after its wet", thus in turn increasing the damage that is done to the rock.

Traversi should have known better in the first place and not used a blow-torch, but you should also have thought about the consequences of posting a video showing him doing it.

We'll have to ask the Access Fund to make another video for their series, this time about blow-torching....

Carlo ConTraversi strikes again. Commented on Bearcam's post to ask why he left it in if he doesn't condone it.

What? Nice one andi, I've just sent an email to bbc news asking why they've put a piece in about Internet cut-offs in Syria. Asking whether they condone it. Why don't people bombard all carlo's sponsors instead of sending them to his website? I'm sure if I had a website and people started saying nice things about me I'd get rid of them sharpish too

Because Carlo wasn't the one who edited the blow-torching in to the video? The BBC neither condones nor does not condone Syrian atrocities, they are impartial and unbiased, whereas Bearcam Media are saying they take a stance against it yet including it in their videos.

Itís not uncommon in Sweden to use a blowtorch to dry holds (the weather this year has been the worst for many years) and, as far as I know, not something thatís frowned upon here.

Well that's a lame cop out.

It is. "not encouraging" is a long way from telling him not to fucking do it.

And now he's replying to all the comments in a sarky and dismissive manner. What a paragon of humanity.

I've spelt it out for them as they clearly don't understand.
