I've mouthed off here on the forums and in the video comments about how technical climbing should be an official sport. Back before I knew what downhill was, I used to love to climb. My first instinct, back in '89or so, was to clean that climb. At the time it was the stone stair trails up out of the Arroyo Seco in Pasadena. While it's quite a bit ahead of what I would probably tape off for an official event, Jeff Lynosky just pulled off what must be the first ever assent of the Horse Thief Bench, which is a descent that most people walk down.

Trials and xc are both uci sports. How much more climbing do we need?

Not the first, but the only uninterrupted Horsethief Bench climb. Very impressive!
