El Cap records

greenspun.com : LUSENET : Mountaineering : One Thread

my partner and i are going to be trying to set some records next sumer and had a few questions, first i know Chris McNamara has the record on el cap as youngest team (13 and 16) but if we did it we would both be 15 would that kinda count since we are both under 16. we are looking at doing Lurking Fear first, any info? then a possible solo. any help would be great.

happy climbing Ben

A little advice from a old fart, climb for the love of climbing and if you set a "record" more power to you.

Dude, like nobody has driven a '48 Buick off the top of El Cap yet and lived...you could be FIRST!!! party on.

Ah, lets see, technically ,NO, that doesn't count. 13 is still younger than 15. even with the new George Bush math. Who cares anyway!! Maybe if you are really itching for a record you could check under "youngest dual virgin ascent", or "first non liscensed driver ascent", or "the first "who is Ronald Reagan Ascent". or even "first ,only 10 pubes between us, ascent!!!". Sorry man, had to flip you a little grief, But WHO CARES!!! Go climb, have fun, get scared, but do it for the right reasons.
