    Thanks to everyone involved. Jerry and I had a fantastic few days hosting and climbing with Magnus and Adam and it was great showing them around our old training haunts. The highpoint had to be seeing them on my Minus 10 classic the Megatron Turbo. Whoever would have thought! Nice one guys.

    The vibe with Jerry heckling (encouragingly!) and Ben just being like an accommodating host is honestly amazing - I could have watched 2hrs of this - would love to see more

    I could easily watch a full hour or more of this. The vibe in this room alone. Learning some of the history and seeing you guys all climb together was incredible to watch. I found your channel about a month ago and I've watched a bunch of your videos. This is one of your best. A series like this with legendary climbers past and present at legendary spots would be amazing. Also, you got me back bouldering for the first time in 10 years this week and brought my little bro with me and he loved it. Appreciate it man, definitely one of my favorite channels on Clip-Share now.

    I mean we all know that Magnus is strong, but the fact that he can still flash boulders that Adam fails to flash is just insane. Adam is the pretty much undisputed nr 1 of our generation and Magnus can still hang with him!

    • Tom Riddle
      Tom Riddle 3 months ago +21

      Your comment reads a bit like you consider Magnus so much older, that he is from another generation than Adam. They are just 4 years apart, if you didn’t know.

      Lawsong6 3 months ago +188

      @Tom Riddle not really, theyre saying more like its impressive that magnus, a retired climber that doesn't do proper training anymore can still hang with the world number one who trains like crazy. It is incredibly impressive

    • Tom Riddle
      Tom Riddle 3 months ago +2

      @Lawsong6 Yea I wasn’t sure. Definitely a possible interpretation.

    • noone
      noone 2 months ago +84

      @Tom Riddle I don't know why you'd think I was talking about age but I guess I can clarify if it was confusing.
      I meant that Magnus retired from competition climbing 6 years ago, and hasn't really been focusing on hard climbing since then. Sure he does a lot of general climbing content, but he doesn't really push himself by projecting really hard routes/boulders. Simultaneously he also does a lot of other wierd fitness stuff that should be to the detriment of his climbing ability.
      On the other hand, Adam has climbed more than 20 V15 or harder boulders and has topped more 9b+ routes then any other climber in history, three of them in the last few years and the last one just a few months ago. So he is obviously at the absolute peak of human climbing ability.
      Given all that, the fact that Magnus can still climb at a comparable level and even outperform Adam on some problems is astounding. Hope that clears it up.

    A bit emotional watching this one. Last video I watched was your other Sheffield video and at the time I mentioned we were close by as my mum was in hospital in Yorkshire. Unfortunately she passed away on the 10th of February. She was really proud of my daughter who has just turned 7 and started climbing. She has been climbing a few months now and we usually watch your videos and Adam's videos together. We went climbing tonight in the northeast of the UK and she spent a lot of time talking about her Nanna. It's been a really emotional month but climbing helps her focus and talking helps her process the emotions. Watching videos together during mums illness was a big help for us both and gave us a lot of support. If you come back to the UK it would be brilliant if she could meet you both. I sent a message on Insta but appreciate you will get thousands. Thanks for another amazing video and this was probably one of my favourites to date. It felt very authentic and real. All fantastic guys and all inspirational. Thanks again

  • Aaron Lennox
    Aaron Lennox 3 months ago +431

    This is an amazing segment! The old footage of Ben and Jerry is from the "The Real Thing", a revolutionary video that completely flipped the script of what a climbing film looked and sounded like. It was the first climbing film that showed us the personalities of the climbers and gave a glimpse into their lifestyles . That coupled with a techno/house club music soundtrack made it look and sound like nothing that had been available before. It was not just another "RAD" action film, it was relatable to a new generation of climbers and set the tone for many films that followed.

    • SingularAttitude

      The more I learn about the history of climbing, the more similarities to skateboarding there are. Amazing.

    • Aaron Lennox
      Aaron Lennox 3 months ago +9

      ​@SingularAttitude True that! Skateboarding saved my life when I was young, climbing shaped the direction of my adult life. I feel very fortunate to have had so much of both in my life.

    Best climbing video I've seen in ages!
    This is the platinum standard for "all star cast".
    The casual tone and the filming is brilliant.
    I got so absorbed about halfway in, I fell into the mindset of being at the crag with mates.
    Then Jerry: "you want some tips Adam? Just pull really hard..." 😂 classic.

  • noone
    noone 3 months ago +145

    This is a fucking insane video!! Huge props to Adam for joining in on this, it's a lot of preassure being nr 1! And of course MAD respect for the absolute legends. Climbing is what it is today because we stand on the shoulders of giants and Ben Moon and Jerry Moffat are undoubtedly some of those giants who have lifted the sport to a whole new level!

    • TD B

      John Bacchar and Alex Honnold* brought it to a new level

    • Jaime Parker
      Jaime Parker Month ago

      ​@TD B in a climb where you can't risk falling there's really no sport at all. it's mad impressive in its own right, but in terms of technique or power or difficulty of climb free solo climbers are absolutely dwarfed.
      they don't care, though, because they climb for themselves. to lump them in with top sport climbers is disrespectful both to them and to the sport climbers

    • TD B

      @Jaime Parker Easy to say from the comfort of your own home. In reality, you don't even have the balls to free solo at your own local gym.

  • Moreno Bellini

    I love how humble Magnus is, despite being one of the best climbers in the world. Seeing him flash a boulder problem that Adam couldn't flash makes you understand how good Magnus actually is. Awesome video!

    • ChauNyan
      ChauNyan 3 months ago +92

      Yeah, there's some advantages that Magnus has over Adam.

    • Aaron Keane
      Aaron Keane 3 months ago +165

      That problem kinda suited a smaller climber. You could see the first moves were awkward for Adam, but yeah take nothing away from Magnus he's still a freak.

    • Punt The Dog
      Punt The Dog 3 months ago +106

      not to be "that guy" but magnus is not one of the best climbers in the world. he himself would readily admit that, i'm fairly certain.
      don't get me wrong. he's stronger than i could ever dream of being, and he's definitely in the top 99th percentile.... but when you are talking about millions (over ~25 million according to some estimates?) of climbers worldwide, being in the top 99th percentile, or even 99.9th percentile, doesn't make you one of the best. i mean just think about how many olympic climbers alone there are. and then you factor in how some of the strongest climbers to have ever lived aren't even competing these days... jimmy webb, daniel woods, nalle, shawn, etc...
      edit: LMAO i seem to have really upset all the salty gymbros who think they know everything because they watched a few youtube videos and started bouldering 3 months ago and just climbed their first v3.
      it's ok you guys can keep telling me why i'm wrong. i know you are wrong. and you know what's hilarious? i bet even magnus knows you are all wrong. and it wouldn't be out of a false sense of humility, it's because i'm sure even magnus himself knows just how good people are these days. there are people NONE OF YOU HAVE EVEN HEARD OF who are stronger climbers than magnus. and if you disagree with me, perhaps you should just take a minute and educate yourself on the world of climbing. it's a lot bigger than magnus' youtube channel.

  • Nicholas Dreger
    Nicholas Dreger 3 months ago +9

    I think Magnus has fooled us into thinking lately he’s a Clip-Sharer who used to climb but this video reminded us he’s a climber who also does Clip-Share. So strong. I’m curious Magnus, how often do you train/climb still in between all the videos?

  • Garcon Rouge

    Ben Moon, at 56 years old, is an inspiration for us 40 something climbers who are careening quickly towards our 50s.
    Something magical about this video and how it kind of blurs time and magnifies what a magical sport climbing is.

    • Pelle Kuipers Music
      Pelle Kuipers Music 2 months ago +2

    Seeing Jerry feed beta to Adam, and then Adam encouraging Ben surely is the most wholesome example of how friendly and encouraging all climbers are, regardless of age and experience.

    This is clearly one of your best videos ever. I always loved the way you interact with others but really think that you came to a new high over the last videos. You always strive to let the others look good and are always very respectful to them even in the undercover climbing ones you always let the instructors look
    good. Love it all. And you are still a hell of a climber.

    Amazing video, absolutely incredible. The idea, the execution, the setting - top notch. Almost brought tears to my eyes on several occasions. This is simply incredible. Magnus deserves to be where he is in the climbing world - full of ideas and incredibly strong still. And Adam was great - humble and competitive as ever. Would love to see more climbing legends. What a video man!!!

    I'd like to now who came up with this idea. What a fantastic video! Brilliant Magnus. This is going to be one that I watched multiple times. Those guys are priceless. You can still see the intensity and competitive spirit in their eyes. So happy you brought Adam with you on this one because they immediately recognized he was worthy of the "title". I haven't seen you so focused Magnus. I just loved this video. Maybe the best one ever.

    This was such a special video. I can just imagine that in 20 years time there will be two new top climbers (maybe one of them is theo blass?) filming a similar video with some of the legends of the past, and it could be you and Adam in Jerry & Ben's shoes.
    It's beautiful, and so special.

    Awesome video!! Thanks for all your great content magnus. I appreciated your comment on how sponsors for climbers now care more about numbers.. Which is good for you but that might mean that some really good climbers not so good at social media might not get so much support and also lost to us as viewers.. So I thought that's something that people like you with numbers can really help this by featuring some great lesser known climbers. We would love to see that

      Same here! It was nice seeing some of the heroes of our generation still up and kicking, showing that we still got this!

      I started climbing in 2009 but I watched all those 90s/00s movies like "Hart Grit" and I enjoyed this video a lot as well.

      You started in the 90s and find normal not mentioning Gullich? Really?

      @riccardo fabris didn’t mention anyone. Just said I enjoyed the Clip-Share video. Had a poster of Gullich if that makes you rage a little less?

    This is like hallowed ground for climbing, and to be able to climb with your rock stars, must be like a dream come true! Well done video and really provided us a good glimpse of climbing culture back in the days!

    What a video. Your channel just gets better Magnus. And to me, your climbing is too, seeing you flash some of those old school problems is just phenomenal. So cool to see the respect you both show to Ben and Jerry, two legit legends.

      When are you visiting Sheff Emil? Come and try some Grit classics and when it rains (not if it rains) head to the School room and see if you can flash Stuey 5 bellies! (or Milk It,!)

    Hey Magnus, I am a Industrial Climber (not sure if you have something similar in Norway, and in certain cases it is very different from Climbing and more Rope Technique, but I would really love to see you do a Crane or Phone Tower Climb, hear your input and see how you feel about climbing metal structures like that, at in-door jobs in factories, climbing steel beams or so, you'd probably do amazing! :)

    This was amazing. I don't really follow climbing, but watching something from 20+ years ago and seeing their minds blown by you two shows how crazy good you two are at it. That makes it even more enjoyable to watch.

    When Magnus was able to flash "Stuey Five Bellies 8A+ (V12)" 15:22 , I just screamed "F*ck yeah!". Really impressive, man! Adam is such a great climber, but Magnus keep reminding me of how good he can keep up with the best. I guess I will need to try harder next time I go to the climbing gym :) Thanks for the video!

      The caption here was incorrect. The problem is "Stuey Five Bellies" named after the climber Stuart Cameron.

    This is by far my fave video you've put out. It's really cool to see that as much as you guys are the superstads in the climbing world, you're still climbers at heart. You guys hanging out and climbing, looks pretty much the same as every other group of climbing friends I've seen. solving problems, hyping each other up and all. Of course, you're just climbing 100 grades harder than the rest, lol.

  • Perplexedon

    It's cool how Ben Moon talked about his endurance getting better while his strength falls off. There is some debate in the literature, but it's generally believed that as you get older, type II fast twitch muscle fibres get converted to type I slow twitch muscle fibres, and the former is optimised for power while the latter is ideal for endurance and posture. It's not a training thing, it's an actual age based physiological change.

    Really cool video and really well done. Awesome to have a video like this that's really a historical climbing type of thing and it's put together very well. For those curious the vide produced for Adam's channel is worth a watch as well, lots more outdoor footage to see there.

    Incredible Magnus! Thank you for making climbing history content! You should also check out some of the historic rock by them. The Face 8a+ in the Altmühltal was the first 8a+ in the world by Jerry

    As everyone has said, this is an unbelievable episode Magnus, simply one of the best things I've ever watched. I'm 52, so Ben and Jerry are obviously going to be heroes of mine, but you, Adam and all of the younger generations of climbers are also heroes to me and that's what is great about the sport. Thanks for making and sharing such a wonderful video :)

    So pleased you got to make this video. I got to climb with Jerry and Ben a long long time ago now and it is something that still sticks with me to this day. They are both a true bunch of gents and absolute inspirations to the sport we all love. Thanks for an awesome video that bought back so many memories for me :-) THANK YOU

    I have kept a VHS player in my house just so that I can still watch the real thing on video (and, occasionally, hard grit...only wish I had a copy of stone monkeys). Immensely nostalgic to see this modern video with legends spanning 5 decades, chapeau for making this happen.

    This is maybe the best video Magnus has ever made. History, great vibes, great climbing, amazing cast of guest stars. I would love to see more. Maybe find other members from past generations to show you their old projects and climbs. Would love to see colab with Alex or Shawn R as well!

    MAGNUSSSSS!! seeing you flash Study Five Bellies was honestly so engaging to watch. I'm so impressed, you don't compete anymore, and a lot of your time i'm sure is based around your other work and the channel, and it was honestly so impressive to see you nail that. I truly didn't realise how much of a powerful climber you still were. Amazing video idea you've bought to life here by connecting these people, which by the tone of the room I feel probably wasn't the easiest thing to arrange.
    Props to you and thanks for what I think is probably the best climbing content out there in terms of contribution to the community and history. I'm sure a lot of people enjoy your prank videos and what not for the casual or non-climbers, but this is where it's at, and the reason I am subscribed and always check out what you're doing. Thanks man!

    There is something about watching the best climbers do what they do best and how flawless they make it look like. It gives one nostalgia to think they could flash the routes as well but given the opportunity we would fail misrely. Congratulations on the calab with all the greats from yesterday and today. What an amazing video. Thanks Magnus
