There's a mea culpa in this video about lying about climbing. Seems pertinent to the discussion.



Good video, just watched it. Refreshingly honest. Would have liked a bit more explanation about why the rehab that worked worked for him. Wonder what he wrote on his 8a.nu scorecard in the end lol.

Went to have a look at it when we were there, Big Worm has nice holds but climbs out of a dabby hole. I think at the time (pre Jade and the more relatively recent development of a tonne of harder boulders) this was the hardest boulder problem in the Alpine areas, if not CO overall?

Yes, that's how it looked - dabby.

Sounds like you did the right thing giving it a swerve :)

And to be fair a lot of Lincoln Lake climbs out of dabby holes but the moves are so so good.

Just got round to watching it, really good :)

Did this topic ever reach a conclusion? I'm assuming he probably lied about the ascent since he's mysteriously disappeared for the last 7 months.

Yeah I guess he either lied about Action Direct and the other routes such as that 8c+ at Gorge du Loup, or was so upset by the climbing "community" doubting him he disappeared. Is he still sponsored by La Sportiva etc?

No sign of him on here. Still listed on the Petzl site though.

Id forgotten all about this. That Czech film crew are really taking their time editing the Action Direct footage.

You should go film the film crew Mike - just so you can call it Cheque Checks Czechs
