She said something awesome @ 1:40

"While no American Woman has ever climbed 9a...I think that maybe, not enough have tried"

That's such an awesome attitude!

wow

that was pretty impressive. thanks.

That was pretty cool, but it

That was pretty cool, but it got a little too mooshy for me. Awesome video i'de love to do that some day I've got buddies who climb and are pretty professional at it. Maybe I can record them with their stunts one day :)

As an avid bowhunter

and archer I can tell you this video is fake, for sure the part where he shoots the small green rope across the canyon from a coil of rope at his feet. The small green rope would be used to pull the heavier black rope across then secured to something very solid. If you notice the rope is on the inside of his arm, meaning when he shoots the rope is going to be drug across his wrist, won't work and is dangerous. Also he is using a lightweight aluminum hunting arrow, not sufficient weight to provide the amount of energy required to pull the rope from the coil on the ground and travel any distance. To do this properly you need a heavy arrow preferably a solid fishing arrow which is designed to pull a string, a much smaller nylon twine that is dispensed from a cartridge/spool mounted on the front of the bow riser. If you want to try this, use a small 100-200 lbs. test line to shoot across and pull your heavy rope across. Lay the coil a couple feet in front of you, and for gods sake tie the line right behind the arrow head not at the back end by the nock or fletches where it will get tangled with the arrow-rest and your arm. Use a heavy solid fiberglass arrow and don't put a retarded deployed mechanical broad-head on it as this guy supposedly did, they are not designed to fly deployed, they deploy blades on contact with the animal. Just wanted to put this out there before any of my youthful DP friends got themselves injured.

The bold effort the present bank had made to control the government ... are but premonitions of the fate that await the American people should they be deluded into a perpetuation of this institution or the establishment of another like it-Andrew Jackson

See "Making of"

The archery part is for fun but if you take a look at the making of video you will see how they pulled this off.

"making of video" is a link at the end of this video.

...

Seriously...? Fake? Just. Wow.

I love www.isidewith.com shared it with everyone I know. If anything they realize its not just a red and blue idiot running for reelection.

That arrow

wouldn't even shoot from the bow. The arrow has to have a clean flight through the "rest". I made a steel arrow to use as a line shooter.
As a climber, this sure looks like fun to me.

yea

there's a "behind the scenes" version of the video that lays out everything they did and who they employed.. one of which was a guy that specializes in a remote controlled helicopter with 8 rotors that films the aerial shots. it's pretty neat.

phew!

i was wondering too! :)

Cool Video

There is no way in hell someone could talk me into doing that... well... ok, I have a few friends who might be able to convince me, but it would take a lot of convincing.

Either way though, moral of the story... Have fun in this world.

Thanks or the video.

That's GREAT !!!

Man that was fun to watch. They did a super job with the video production too!

Beware the cult of "government"...

Nope, not watching!!

That's like the IMAX where I always shut my eyes before the helicopter we're in goes off the cliff. Fortunately I was able to stop the video right as he jumped. Whew, that was a close one.
