    Yeh bugger that for a joke.
    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    Would probably do it if I was retrieving my first Tahr but certainly wouldn't be doing it for shits and gigs

    Yep, the climbing doesn't look too tricky and it certainly isn't difficult for a climber of Honnolds ability! Still a good effort to do it that fast mind you, not suggesting I could beat him.

    Try this one on for size too... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_a0X9rdJ7hc

    It looked to me like he had practised it a number of times and he knew where he was going, where his holds were and what to do. Still bat shit crazy if you ask me. Still quite a feat.
