          Just a little reminder that climbing is supposed to be fun, don't take it too seriously! I believe this to be the "First Natural Ascent" of Dopey Duck (5.9, 3 pitches) at Shortoff Mountain, NC See more of my shenanigans and soloing below: www.DreamingOfGnar.com instagram.com/freesoloist facebook.com/freesoloist

                    Есть еще порох в пороховницах! На рассвете, при первых лучах солнечного света, я пролез без страховки 60 метровый мультипитч на Зубе Морчеки сложностью 6б и прыгнул бейс с вершины. Получилось очень красиво. А немногим позже я перебрался под саму Морчеку и заборол ~300 метровый альпинистский маршрут - Рыжий угол. Лез я его так-же, без страховки. Это был настоящий вызов! Это самое сложное и щекотливое лазание без веревки из всего что было в моей жизни. Огромный карниз, лазание на трении в распоре, маленькие зацепки под ноги и куча магнезии, чтобы успокоить нервы. =) Было очень круто! Подробнее об этом дне можно прочитать тут: http://www.risk.ru/users/droha/198428/ There is life in the old dog yet! At dawn, the first rays of sunlight, I climbed 60 meters route on the "Tooth Morcheka" complexity 6b without belay and BASE jumped from the top. It turned out very nicely. A little later I moved to Morcheka and climbed about 300 meter long climbing route - Red corner. I climbed it the same way - without belay. It was a real challenge! This is the most complex and delicate climbing without a rope out of all that happened in my life. A huge cornice, climbing friction in the thrust, small footholds and a bunch of magnesia to calm the nerves. =) It was very cool!
