Edelweiss Ropes U.S.A. and Liberty Mountain present Pamela Shanti Pack on The Forever War 5.13+ R in Vedauwoo, WY.
Thank you to Edelweiss Ropes USA and Liberty Mountain for your tremendous support and outstanding ropes. I had a great time making this video with Nathan Smith. Check out more of his amazing work at Pull Photography.
Note: A few people have asked me about the bolts on this route as well as the “R” rating. There is almost always the potential for slamming back into the roof and/or the ground when falling out of inverts. However, that in itself never warrants an “R” rating in my opinion as it’s quite obvious when looking at the route. In this case, I wanted people to be aware that there is dangerous fall potential precisely because it looks as if there isn’t any. If you happen to fall while clipping bolt one or bolt two or placing a piece just past bolt two you will likely take a header into the ledge and this isn’t apparent from the ground.
Also, I am regularly asked why I don’t wear a helmet. I would love to wear a helmet but more often than not I can’t fit in the offwidth with a helmet!
