Weekend Whipper: Trad Dyno Attempt at Fair Head, Northern Ireland

09-Feb-2017


Belfast-based climber Ricky Bell goes for a wild ride when he doesn't quite stick the dyno of his Rathlin Wall project, Fair Head, Northern Ireland.

Bell's affinity for ground up, onsight ascents made him a figure in the climbing world. "Don't cheat the route, basically," he says in the video, "but more importantly, don't cheat yourself." His staunch ethics, however, often came at a cost, such as screaming whippers like this one. This whipper cut originally appeared in the 2008 film, On Sight, by Posing Productions. Find the full film on posingproductions.com.

Happy Friday and climb safe this weekend!
