End Of Climbing History?

This essay develops the point that climbing technology hasn’t changed since the mid 1980s and probably won’t. He states:  “…that history no longer is being made in climbing. I don't mean that there is nothing left to do in climbing, far from it, but that there is no significant innovation in terms of technology, practice, arena, or destination likely to emerge in the future that will be considered truly historical.”
