1. The Bachar Yerian 5.11c R/X


    from Half Circle G Productions Added 33.8K 109 15

    This is a short film about my friends Andrew Rock and Jan McCollum attempting to onsight the "Bachar-Yerian" in Tuolumne Meadows, CA. The "B&Y" is one of the best rock climbs in the world but its reputation for being super runout keeps most mortals away. This infamous 4 pitch route was put up by John Bachar and Dave Yerian in the 80's. It boasts huge runouts between bolts and at the grade of 5.11c R/X represents more of a mental challenge than anything else. Make no mistake, however, as some of the strongest guys in the world, Wolfgang Gullich and Jerry Moffat come to mind, have taken giant whippers as they failed to onsight. Andrew and Jan are not professional climbers, but they embody the spirit of the sport. I hope you enjoy this tale of their climb.

      • John Bachar - July 2008 Interview Extract


        from Dave Gill Added 18K 21 1

        John Bachar fell whilst soloing at the Dike Wall near Mammoth Lakes in California this weekend (July 5th 2009). The Dike Wall is situated at 9,000ft above Mammoth Lakes where John lived with his son. John was climbing alone and was found at the base of the 80ft North Wall. He was pronounced dead at Mammoth Hospital on Sunday afternoon. John was 51, and leaves a son, Tyrus. We met up with John in July 2008, in Mammoth Lakes, USA and filmed a great interview with him. Here is some of that interview, which hopefully shows some of John's mindset, ethos and humour.
