Example text

Rigid crampons and down-curved picks were born and the basic format of the equipment we see in the sport today became available. The modern climber will rarely cut steps, preferring to rely on a deftly placed axe in each hand and the razor sharp front points of specialist crampons on each foot. Modern climbing crampons have either one or two front points and it is now common among top climbers for these to be permanently bolted to the sole of the boot. Modern ice and mixed climbers use a full repertoire of rock climbing movement and will even hook an axe over their shoulder, or holster it onto the harness in order to free up a bare hand while moving over rock.

The average ascent of this 31 pitch route still takes 5 days which means that climbers must transport food, water and sleeping equipment up the wall as they ascend. The fastest ascent of The Nose is now less than six and a half hours, but it is still classed a big wall since for most parties it is a multi-day affair. The style which climbers adopt on a big wall will vary; some will insist on climbing the entire wall free, but it is more common to use the rope and equipment placed in the rock for aid during some pitches in order to save time or overcome sections that are too difficult for the climber to complete free.

Snowboarding Considering skiing has one of the longest histories in adventure sports, snowboarding appears to have one of the shortest. The official start of snowboarding has been attributed to Sherman Poppin’s Snow Surfer or Snurfer, which appeared in the 1960s. While sliding sideways down a snow slope is relatively new, it is generally accepted that snowboarding has been heavily influenced by skiing, surfing and skateboarding. Snowboarding has been one of the fastest growing sports of all time and the concept of surfing or skateboarding on snow has captured the imagination of existing snow sports enthusiasts and young people venturing into snow sports for the first time.
