If yes, there's no punchline. If no, then oh dear.
So you know what the problem is like? I find it easier and more accurate to see a problem than to imagine it.
The first video, as the article explains, displays the high heel hook that could result in the climber becoming inverted and flying head first towards the ground. I imagine the filmer wishes to save the full ascent for a future video.
In the second video the climber uses a high toe hook in order to free his other hand to enable him to match hands on the finishing hold; as is general practice for non top out boulder problems.
Next time why not ask polite questions instead of handing out accusations towards a side of the sport that you have little understanding of.
Because he has to match the last hold to finish.............
FFS - The second video is Nalle Hukatavial, not James Webb - it's just to illustrate the route.
