I did some climbing in my youth but nothing anywhere close to the difficult climbs this guy does.

Knew a guy who free climbed a 300’ 5.6 that we did on belay and thought he was insane. He took the same approach to riding a motorcycle. He was a better climber than rider and died in the saddle.

Oh, okay. I played a very tiny bit of the first one on Orange Box. We mostly played Half-Life 2.

Half Life 2 eh? Well you might be interested then on how Black Mesa stole the Portal technology from Aperture Science to create the Resonance Cascade.

Oh well, I guess we will see how the two game's storylines connect in Portal 3 and Half Life 3

Interesting. Satan can give unusual powers: Preternatural; fear suppression, too.

Satan could also withdraw that “gift” 2499’ up a half mile climb.

I did make it through the video but not without plenty of autonomic fear responses of my own.

Yup.

Back in the day I owned a climbing school/guide service and was spending around 150 days a year on the rock. I free climbed a bit, mostly 5.6-5.8 and all under 100 feet.

Looking back on that time makes me realize that although freeing a wall is the ultimate expression of the sport, only a precious few should attempt the things that Hollold does... and even then, for a very short window of time.

Oh Sorry, that was just a video on how Gabe Newell Trolls us.

Everyone knows he can't count to Three.

I gotta say I have no idea who Gabe Newell is. Though I do know Leroy Jenkins.

John Bachar was the best for 30 years, until he fell in July 2009.

Gabe Newell is the brains and force behind Valve, the makers of Half Life and Portal.

He owns the Company that makes them and directs their development course.

As such we have Half Life 2, Portal 2, Left 4 Dead 2, Team Fortress 2, Counterstrike 2, Half Life 2 Episode 1, Half Life 2 Episode 2.

You see a pattern here?

Unlike Leeroy Jenkins, Gabe Newell does Nothing Quickly.
