Weekend Warrior -- Videos to Get You Stoked!

It's time for another edition of the Weekend Warrior -- Videos to get you Stoked! This weekend is a special one here in the North Cascades because it looks like the end of our cold, dreary Junuary (June and January combined for those who are unfamiliar with the term) weather. We have some fantastic videos to get you motivated to go out and play in the mountains!

Our first video we present to you features one of our favorite local climbing areas to the North, Squamish. Watch as Sonny Trotter finally nabs the first free ascent of Cobra Crack, an aesthetic 5.14 line up a beautiful granite face. Just watching this video gets my arms pumped! Check it out here.

The second video we have for you this weekend is actually a trailer for the climbing movie, "Beyond Gravity". The video features almost every type of climbing you can imagine. Watch as climbers offer insight into why they climb and what inspires them. Click here to watch.

The final video for all you weekend warriors is shot in a place you wouldn't want to stay for only a weekend. This video features the beautiful alpine scenery of the Alps. Get up close and personal with the Matterhorn and surrounding peaks here.
