This Bear Grylls Video Is Ridiculous, In A Bad Way

Personally I have a soft spot for Bear Grylls but when I saw this video, I was horrified. The video showcases Bear “climbing” a desert tower using a strange mix of soloing, toproping, and leading (on an apparently 40-foot rope) but with no partner, or any climbing shoes.

So, this has got to go down as one of the worst Hollywood portrayals of rock climbing, right? It has to be up there with the Mission Impossible 2 “crucifix” move 600 feet in the air. Anyway, you be the judge …
