Who cares if it is cheating. Only person he is cheating is himself. I'd be more worried about his health.. EPO is not exactly Ibuprofen.

Diamox is on the WADA prohibited list. I dunno what it's like in the US but over here tests are actually being done at all levels and in all sports competitions. You can't even participate in a 10k (running) or a sailing race after a mountain trip when you used Diamox. You might even get kicked out of the local gym (although getting banned from the local indoor climbing wall might be a liberation :wink: )

WADA rules aside, what happened to good style?

When I hike/climb I like to use these. Is it cheating?

"90% organic, entirely natural." I love it! Maybe the other 10% is sand.

i see it like this..
if your patagoina and La Sportiva sponsorship was about to expire because you weren't strong enough to red point some 5.16 or some ED5 alpine route or speed solo, you would pump all sorts of shit into your self...
Its naive of us to think that all the top dudes in climbing aren't all on some form of performance enhancing drugs.... Piratically every other sport has had some scandal with top athletes using them.... I doubt there will ever be piss test before alpine climbs.....
When there is money or golden ice axes involved who bloody knows....
