Say It With Us Now: Bongo Bar



Blamman… Big wall… Free climb… The rest of the words out of Sottish climber Dave Macloud’s mouth are virtually incomprehensible. And that’s perhaps how you’d describe this first ascent in rockface free climbing. “Bongo Bar,” a new route up the north face of Blamman in Norway, is difficult to comprehend — that is, until you zoom out and see the tiny climber in the context of his surroundings. It’s breathtaking to watch from home. Imagine what Macloud feels on the mountain. Check the 1:30 mark to see just how insane this monstrous first ascent really is.
