I come to to read about innovations in arboristry and upward social mobility, not videos about "amazing" free climbers soloing routes in a style that the gods of the Golden Age only dreamed of that were posted a whole week ago. Sheesh.

@grump - If you don't want to see Alex ... then don't watch. Instead you could be humble and try to learn something, see it as a blessing that we get free media which could be used to teach and inspire us. But I guess it all depends on how we see things and interpret things. @Will, @Joe - What is the big deal in posting a video that was posted somewhere else ? I don't follow the National Park Foundation's vimeo page so would not have seen this. Are you not exaggerating a bit and mildly bad-mouthing ? (note that I said mildly in order to tone it down a bit and not offend anyone). All good.

Joe, recycling old stuff? This was posted a week ago on the National Park Foundation's Vimeo page.

Once again, Climbing Mag is recycling old stuff.

Alex seems like a nice guy and obviously is a superb climber, but the amount of attention he get for any little "commercial" endeavor is really getting annoying. I don't fault him for making money at something he loves, but I am just getting tired of seeing him everywhere.
