Wayne Merry August 1931 October 2019

Wayne Merry who was on the first ascent of The Nose on El Capitan in 1958, passed away October 29 2019. El Capitan, a sheer granite wall that towers 2,900 feet above Yosemite National Park in California, is one of the most famous climbs in the world. Professional climbers are so familiar with this arduous rock formation that some climb it without rope or race up as fast as they can; the speed record on a route called the Nose, set in 2018 by Alex Honnold and Tommy Caldwell, is a little under two hours. But for climbers in the first half of the 20th century, limited by rudimentary tools and techniques, El Capitan was terra incognita. The rock face was very smooth, without many of the vertical cracks climbers rely on, and many alpinists considered it insurmountable. Most climbers who did try were content to scale a pitch or two near El Capitan's base. But Wayne Merry, Warren Harding and George Whitmore were determined to go much higher. On Nov. 12, 1958, they became the first climbers to reach the top of El Capitan after ascending the Nose, notable for a daunting overhang called the Great Roof. The climb took 45 days, spread out over about a year and a half; in each leg of the climb they would secure fixed ropes to the highest point they had reached so that they could later resume the climb with relative ease. Merry, whose pathbreaking ascent inspired many climbers who have completed El Capitan in his wake, died on Oct. 30 at his home in Atlin, British Columbia. He was 88. His wife, Cindy Merry, said the cause was metastatic prostate cancer. His death was little reported beyond climbing publications and websites. Harding undertook the climb in 1957 with Mark Powell and Bill Feurer, who were aware of the difficulties they faced. "It was obvious that existing methods of conducting a sustained rock climb would be inadequate," Harding wrote in an article in American Alpine Journal in 1959. "Because of the extreme difficulty of the climbing, we anticipated slow progress - perhaps no more than 100 to 200 feet a day." He added, "We agreed unanimously that the only feasible plan of attack would be to establish a succession of camps up the face, linking them with fixed ropes." Powell and Feurer dropped out before completing the climb. Whitmore, Merry and Rich Calderwood joined Harding in 1958. They subsisted on cheese, raisins, canned fruit and sardines. They carried water in an old paint-thinner can, and drank wine. "We trained on red wine, if anything," Merry told The Yukon News in 2015. They relied on improvised implements, including pitons that they fashioned from the legs of old wood stoves and tools from a hardware store that they repurposed for climbing. "I wouldn't hang a picture from them today, but back then we hung our lives on them," Merry told Yukon North of Ordinary magazine in 2016. The climbers also faced limitations imposed by humans. Yosemite park rangers forbade them to climb during the summer tourist season, so they had a limited time to climb and faced greater risk of bad weather. They also had jobs or were attending school, so they climbed mainly on weekends. The National Park Service gave them a deadline of Thanksgiving to reach the top, so in early November they began a nerve-racking final push. During that effort Merry dropped letters to Cindy Barrison, then his girlfriend and later his wife, from the cliff in tin cans. "We were scared to death half the time," Merry told The San Francisco Chronicle in 2008, the year of the climb's 50th anniversary. "There were days I didn't know what I was doing up there." The push took about 12 days, interrupted by an intense snowstorm; Calderwood dropped out before they reached the top. Frustrated by the delay, the three remaining climbers decided to push on, even in the dark. Harding, wearing a head lamp, climbed up the final pitch overnight, scaling a 90-foot wall, which he later described as "completely devoid of cracks," with the help of "15 pitons, 28 bolts and 14 hours." Harding clambered over the top of the wall at about 6 o'clock on the morning of Nov. 12, with Merry and Whitmore close behind. Members of their small support team had hiked up the mountain from the other side and greeted them with champagne. Fifty years later the House of Representatives passed a resolution honoring Merry, Whitmore and Harding for the accomplishment. Harding died in 2002. In a phone interview, Whitmore, the last survivor of the three, described Merry as "the epitome of a good, steady fellow" whose "even-tempered, usually cheerful, never negative" outlook made climbing El Capitan possible. "Don't get excited, just keep plugging away at it" was Merry's climbing philosophy, Whitmore said. "Maintain a positive at Číst dále >>> Přeložit do en

PODZIMNÍ A ZIMNÍ DONBAS 14. – U POLINY V SEDMÉ TŘÍDĚ

Jaromír Vašek 06.12.2019, 11:54

Pokračuji v návštěvách škol v Alčevsku (LLR), kam chodí členové studia Eťud-Tais. Po návštěvě 4.školy-gymnázia (Alina, Petr, Lejla) jsem 2.12.2019 navštívil 3.školu, kam chodí do 7.třídy Polina Labutina. V této škole jsem ještě nebyl. Paní ředitelku jsem krátce seznámil s činností naší Společnosti přátel LLR a DLR a Českého kulturního centra Julia Fučíka v Lugansku.

Znovu jsem navštívil 30.11.2019 trénink vzdušných akrobatek v Domě kultury Puškina v Doněcku (DLR). Byl jsem tu již na jaře. Setkal jsem se s přáteli- s trenérem Viktorem Michajlovičem Vovkem a s akrobatkami. Kromě první skupiny si mě všechny akrobatky pamatovaly. Viktorovi a Dianke (9) jsem předal Haló noviny se svým článkem o jarním tréninku

Česká politická scéna jako na dlani

Evropa má zaděláno na hodně velký, ale skutečně velký průšvih. Musíme okamžitě obnovit kontroly na hranicích. Toto nám řekl poslanec z výboru pro obranu

07.12.2019, 14:52

ROZHOVOR „Schengen nefunguje a Evropou se všemi směry pohybují teroristé s vojenským výcvikem, a to za ohromného potlesku naivních sluníčkářů a neziskových organizací. Je třeba okamžitě obnovit hraniční kontroly na našich vlastních hranicích, dokud je ještě čas. Evropa má totiž zaděláno na hodně velký, ale skutečně velký průšvih,“ konstatuje místopředseda sněmovního výboru pro obranu Radovan Vích (SPD). Jediná instituce, která může dle něj posoudit otázku střetu zájmů premiéra, je český soud. Osobně se též distancuje od jakékoliv podpory rehabilitace generála Andreje Vlasova a jeho jednotek, které „historie považuje za zrádce a kolaboranty“.

„Tohle si přečtěte! Premiér ho nemůže ani cejtit, bude zase vyvádět a bude opět na*ranej..." Kalousek se před pár dny vyjádřil na adresu Babiše a my získali nečekané svědectví

07.12.2019, 18:04

Vše začalo zhruba před čtyřmi lety, kdy se oba výrazní politici vsadili o astronomických deset milionů korun. Někdejšího ministra financí Kalouska řádně rozhněvalo, když o něm Andrej Babiš řekl, že byl vyšetřován kvůli svému rozhodnutí povolit online hazard. Kalousek proto vyzval Babiše, aby přijal sázku, že nikdy vyšetřován nebyl. „Sázku přijímám. Ať mi pošle deset milionů na účet,“ reagoval Babiš. Jenomže prohrál.

Rektor Zima na akci Milana Syručka odhalil, čeho se politici bojí a nechtějí to udělat. Jde o vysoké školy

07.12.2019, 19:52

REPORTÁŽ Všem vysokým školám stejné peníze? Politici dnes nechtějí rozhodnout, koho podpořit. Děláte špičkový výzkum, nebo jste „zašiti“ v regionální univerzitě bagatelního významu? Podmínky dotací máte stejné! Jen nevyčuhovat z davu! To je podle rektora Univerzity Karlovy Tomáše Zimy naše veliká bolest. Předsedkyně Akademie věd prof. Eva Zažímalová vzpomněla na časy, kdy sice nebyly potřebné suroviny, ale byly dělnické „kádry“, které vědě nerozuměly ani za mák a opičily se tak po Sovětském svazu. Setkání československých vědců s těmi ze Západu bylo groteskou, kdy za číšníky byli evidentně estébáci. To zaznělo na akci, kterou uspořádal novinářský nestor Milan Syruček v Praze za podpory Nadace železné opony.

Zeman vede džihád proti ČT? Petr Žantovský je ohromen nad argumentací zaměstnance ČT. I nad slovy dalšího novináře, že žijeme ve válce

07.12.2019, 05:15

TÝDEN V MÉDIÍCH Obrovskou porci demagogie vytasil komentátor Vladimír Mertlík při obhajobě akcí Milionu chvilek, které jsou v podstatě protestem proti volebnímu demokratickému uspořádání společnosti. Přišel dokonce s analogií, že ani svět nenechal dovládnout většinově zvolenou administrativu Třetí říše, aby ji v dalších volbách mohl německý lid vystavit účet. Pro Petra Žantovského však tento článek není jediným kandidátem na hloupost týdne. Zdatnou konkurencí mu je text Martina Fendrycha oslavující starostu z Řeporyjí. Třešničkou na dortu je pak tvrzení, že se Česká televize musí bránit džihádu, který proti ní vede prezident Miloš Zeman.

Další hák šéfovi ODS, že to mlasklo až v Brně: Vystavil si Babišův portrét, dopsal k němu sedm slov a rozjel nevídaný kolotoč. Jenže zase proti sobě

07.12.2019, 11:45

Předsedovi ODS nelze upřít snahu a píli, s jakou spravuje osobní profil na sociální síti Facebook. Právě tam, kde má přes 40 tisíc fanoušků, pravidelně odpovídá čtenářům, přidává fotografie, glosy a videa. Jedním z obrazových materiálů byl také atak na premiéra Babiše, který se týkal dotací. Ačkoli si fotografie vysloužila přes tisícovku zdvižených palců, v komentářích to naopak občanští demokraté schytali prakticky od každého.

Podle známého kontroverzního výroku Ústavního soudu z dubna tohoto roku je diskriminace (v tomto případě Rusů) v pořádku, pokud ní nevedou hanebné pohnutky. Důvody, které k tomu Ústavní soud vedly jsou ve stručnosti tyto.

Pavel Novotný: Když si Žid přeje smrt Čechů, je to zcela v pořádku

Valentin Dobrotivý 06.12.2019, 00:10

Hned na začátku se přiznám, že osobu Pavla Novotného jsem zaznamenal až minulý měsíc, v souvislosti s jeho plánem postavit v pražských Řeporyjích pomník padlým vlasovcům. Toto gesto jsem ihned pochopil jako typicky populistickou, provokativní snahu o získání tolik důležitého celorepublikového politického PR a laciné reklamy na svojí osobu. Což se očekávaně splnilo na více než 100%. Za jiných okolností by to byla bezvýznamná akce vůdce jedné z periferií hlavního města. Díky přehnané (ale účelově plánované) medializaci ovšem překročila hranice této země a dostala se až do hlavního vysílacího času ruské televize.

Je evropská komise neomylné božstvo?

Lubomír Man 04.12.2019, 00:10

Jistě je, vždyť je to komise složená z lidí tak nesmírně moudrých a nadaných rozumem tak bezchybným a neselhávajícím, že jakýkoli omyl či chybný úsudek kteréhokoli z jeho 28 členů je naprosto vyloučen. A je vynikající okolností, že míru této nadlidské duševní dokonalosti celé komise jako celku i každého z jejích členů zvlášť, jsme si mohli my Češi v minulosti (a můžeme tak činit i v přítomnosti), tak říkajíc osahat na jednom z členů této komise, jímž je naše krajanka a komisařka Věra Jourová.

Kam jsme (ne)došli po třiceti letech

Radomír Dolanský 03.12.2019, 00:10

Chtěli jsme na Západ. To se povedlo. Tehdejší západní svobodu a demokracii socialistický tábor infikoval a dnes se potácíme v něčem, co má něco málo ze Západu, něco víc ze socialismu a stále více z diktatury orwellovského typu. Po roce 89 ́ jsme byli nadšení, jak úžasně nás Západ vítá, objímá s ochotou všemožně pomoci. Dnes, po letech, je jasné, že šlo převážně o kšeft a strategické politicko-vojenské pozice. Navezli do východního bloku miliardy tun západní nadvýroby – převraty v soc. dem. bloku pomohly Západu oddálit agónii nekryté měny a zadluženosti. Následující kolaps se už bude týkat i nás.

Město v Bosně: migranti jsou všude

Autor neuveden 02.12.2019, 00:10

Po zásahu tehdejšího rakouského ministra zahraničí Sebastiana Kurze v roce 2017 byla balkánská trasa z velké části uzavřena, takže se migranti začali hromadit na vnější hranici Chorvatska. Zhruba 90% všech migrantů je natěsnáno v jednom městě v Bosně a Hercegovině, které má 61 000 obyvatel, uvedl starosta Šuhret Fazlić .
