That was an awesome event!

The events of the day once again prove conclusively that trad climbing is the superior climbing discipline.

Well done to Deirdre, Simon and team.

I'll just leave this here:
So the only true form of climbing is free soloing while placing gear and building anchors but not using either for protection? You're just sticking them in the rock for the hell of it, and if you fall, you die?
Yes. Free solo trad requires all the boldness and technical prowess of true climbing.
ps. Tradathon was awesome as always. :thumleft:

Without contributing to the inflammatory nature of the contents of the above posts - I must agree that it was an excellent event enjoyed by the participants - thank you Simon and Deidre!
