Helmet Cam in 3 Parts

27 05 2010

The following is Scott Chapman wearing a helmet cam while climbing what I think is Say No to Jimmy (5.9) into the extension project Say Yes to Jimmy (5.13+).  Part 2 is the transition from mostly vertical face thru a large roof and into tiny holds.





Lake Brownwood Video

1 04 2010

Its almost unknown outside of the Abilene area, but near Brownwood, Texas is a small lake with some quality bouldering.  One problem in particular has been the subject of attempts for several years.  It is an tall overhanging block with small crimps and a horrible landing.

This past week, Scott Chapman of Camp Eagle and Eric Gentry of AbileneClimbers made the first and second ascents of Jack in the Box.  The following video is the second ascent.

Visit AbileneClimbers for more photos and a recap of the send.

It’s been awhile since the last video roundup.

Check out Slashface V4, J-Tree courtesy of the new video site www.climbclips.com.  The site hopes to become a Youtube for the climbing world, with nice features like embeddable clips that other sites like MomentumVM don’t have. It’s still fairly new, but go check it out.
