This is even harder than the harder that it looks.

I don't know op, that looks pretty freakin hard.

Yeah but it's even harder than the harder

that's the hardiest hard harder I've ever harded

That is a stunningly well thought out route. Who ever set that also deserves applause.

Hung Ying Lee

This is on women's problem 3 in the semi finals at the IFSC world cup this year in Navi Mumbai, India.*

I dunno it harder that looks pretty harder than I climbing could be climbing I couldn't probably.

Wow, she has really been far even as decided to use even go want to do look more like!


Got a timestamp by any chance?

Edit: Petra Klingler at is a way simpler and elegant solve for this problem, wow

Also Chloe Caulier at 29:38 has a pretty clever method, though she misses the jump

Monica Retschy at 1:29:42 has a rough struggle but finishes it pretty impressively at 1:30:40

This! Not enough credit for route setters.

I think it's trying to communicate with us what do we do?

I dunno. I always find at least a little conversation about the route/problem when there’s a climbing thing.

This, incidentally, would tear my ligaments from my bones. Leg moves, particularly that require me to extend my left hip, just fucking end me.

But, then, I probably mass twice this woman with only 20% of that being muscle. The rest is marbling so that I can be delicious for whoever has to consume me as they await their rescue.

Have you ever had a dream that you, um, you had, your, you- you could, you’ll do, you- you wants, you, you could do so, you- you’ll do, you could- you, you want, you want them to do you so much you could do anything?

Well, hardie har har!

There’s not a whole lot of climbers on reddit, so that’s to be expected.

What are you supposed to do if you are not a 6' tall giraffe-legged Gumby?

Edit: I looked her up, and apparantly she's a 32 year old Taiwanese woman, so statistically speaking she's unlikely to be as leg-length-endowed as I'd assumed from this clip. I couldn't find any hard numbers on height though.

Sure, but is it even easier than the easier to slip?

Most wholesome community I've ever seen. I was really nervous to start, but I regularly get shouts of encouragement and tips from the pros when I go. It's really satisfying to finally get a problem, it's like a puzzle that you're solving with your whole body. Make sure you go easy and warm up to start though, it is easy to injure yourself even though there's big poofy mats to land on.

haha what

Wow that 29:38 move was brilliant. Makes me want to try bouldering

I think that was his point.

The harder and the furious - harder than harder.

So that last move she does is called a Dyno where she leaps to that last hold is really tough even with that easy hold... so easy to slip

I mean I’m a redditor and a climber. It sounds like you two are climbers. So as long as you’re redditors, that’s 3 for 3. So far according to my survey, 100% of redditors are climbers.

Edit: the numbers are pouring in. The people are speaking. If we keep going at this rate, there’s a chance Reddit-climbers may actually out number total redditors! We’re up to like 7!

Edit too: Mkay. We need some visuals. I’m on it.

Edit three: some might ask what Chloe has to do with any of this. She was there when I made the graph and deserves to stay. I don’t think her presence affects any of us here or any of the statistics bing brought forward. Chloe stays.

this lady's solution

There's different ways to solve it without doing the splits, ex: .

If this goes front page, you know all the comments will be about .sdia em evag eltit ruoY

Harder2 ?


Easily my favorite old meme.

satisfied smile

Nah at all not. Its title same than the exact the imgur post it looks.


It's such a mangled mess of words, and I'd never be able to remember it without looking it up, but I'd recognize it just about anywhere.

Lol what? Every climber I know is also a Redditor. Climbing is trendy with a younger, more liberal crowd which is exactly how Reddit skews.

Edit: I apologize for not including all you old cunts in my comment.

Way to take one for the team bud.

I was envisioning her being like 50 feet up and at the end I screamed

Agreed. What is harder than “almost certainly impossible”?

Throw chocolate at it.

haha what

edit: oh no

Only mostly impossible. There's a big difference between mostly impossible and all-the-way impossible. Mostly impossible is still sliiiiiiiightly possible. With all-the-way impossible, well, with all-the-way impossible, there's usually only one thing you can do.

Go through your options and look for excuses.

Nope, that looks about as hard as it is.

Flexibility. Strength. Great technique.


y = r3 / 3

I read the title and now I’m cross eyed

I totally nailed that

Petra's quite a bit taller though -- it's not clear Hung Ying could have made that move.

You've got to be kidding me. I've been further even more decided to use even go need to do look more as anyone can. Can you really be far even as decided half as much to use go wish for that? My guess is that when one really been far even as decided once to use even go want, it is then that he had really been far even as decided to use even go want to do look more like. It's just common sense.

Harder than Tom Hardy?

Like way even harder than the harder it looks

All I see is *******

women's problem

So that's what that means!

I’m new here... I want to know the May May’s


She's at 39:35 minutes of that video, but the source for this post is her instagram.

That's very thoughtful of you

It do


It seems like you wouldn't have to do that split move. Maybe it is a reach thing. I would think you could get to that spot she jumps from without doing a plank/split combo.

Are you harder than it looks?

Really so when I type hunter2 all you see is *******?

Ive done some bouldering but if someone else is more experienced why tf would she bother using the hold on the left? It seems like that hold makes the first part of this unnecessarily hard.

Same here, but for some reason my imagination added crocodiles at the bottom

Bouldering is a ton of fun! I'd definitely recommend it.

Really so when I type ******* all you see is *******?

More like a ekorts.

I'm laughing aloudly

So the Assassin's Creed megajumps are actually possible

No. I used to climb. I'm just impressed.

That title is harder to read than the harder it looks for to be.

Nah, harder.

Yep, and still winning every other comp! She won this event in Mumbai too!

Real life Lara Croft

Whoa. That's way harder than the harder. The hardest, maybe. Seriously.

The way you described the volumes (large shapes) makes me think you don’t boulder much

They also don't have to be a native speaker.

Hard if true.


I’m calling 112

The way you described the volumes (large shapes) makes me think you don’t boulder much, and are basing your theories on physics. Bouldering hard problems involves a lot of balance using core muscles to counter typical scenarios with static objects.

I suspect the intended solution does involve a dynamic move to “bounce” over, with one foot on the large volume on the right and right hand to the smaller volume, and counter the barn door effect (swing out) by pulling with her right arm and pushing with her right leg.

But this problem is definitely beyond anything I can do.

Edit: want to make sure I wasn’t attacking your comment: just trying to explain that some boulder problems require really creative solutions, and that’s why I love the sport.

Thanks! Did anyone else top this? Is Shauna Coxey still competing? I’m really out of it last few years!

I think OP was a little preoccupied while making the title

Sweet! So man.... I think according to my official Reddit survey of the worldtm Reddit is at least 400% climbers.

I’ll be updating my results as the forms come in.

Count me in too, coach!

And /sub/climbingcirclejerk for exposing absolutely everything as aid.

Woo! I remember when she broke her leg and said “guess I can work on my upper strength.” What an inspiring and mature young girl (think she was 19 or something?), she’ll always be my fav.

Well, when you put it like that it's super obvious

I starts on the left and there are no feet over to the right, forcing the mantle press
