Even thou I don't wear a helmet often, it would make me look 10 years younger, since it would hide my bald head!

Right there with you Steve!!lol
The glare tends to throw off the light meters anyway!!

Mikey actually put a clear welding visor on his hard hat for climbing ice. I gave him mucho s#@t for it, but reading this thread I first thought 'yeah, something really outrageous like some of hockey goalie masks would be cool'. Then I thought of the masks and helmets in Japanese kabuki. That would be really cool. We're all samurai anyway, right?

Super bored so I counted. In Jerry's new book there was 84 non helmeted climbers and 16 helmeted climbers and one unknown in climbing shots.  Generally speaking the helmeted climbers were on sub 5.10 terrain. Discuss.

Alright, I'm one of the 16! Pg 204. Yes, I know the caption is wrong. Handren said they'll fix it at next print.

Holy shit that hip belay at 2:23 is ridiculous... no gloves, no stance, no anchor visible... right after the spot he slipped on "leading"...

These guys may be skilled (though I think one is new), but they have an insanely high level of risk acceptance based on watching this video... God Speed....

What is this exactly?  Sounds like outrageous and fun at the same time, whatever it is.
