Weekend Warrior -- Videos to Get You Stoked!

Well Warriors it's officially November! And desert climbing in places like Red Rock Canyon, Joshua Tree National Park, Smith Rock State Park, Zion National Park, and Indian Creek are alive with climbers. So today we have two videos...the first is will take you on a journey to Joshua Tree National Park for a little desert psyche. And the second will take you deep into the Alps for a little comic relief.

Sometimes it's fun to watch people climb routes that mortals can do. This video is one of those. We see a man and a rock and unlike many of those videos that we've put up in the past, the man is not superhuman and the route is 5.8. Enjoy!

People of a certain age have a real affinity for Bugs Bunny. I have to say that that rascally rabbit is kind-of an arrogant know-it-all, but he's still fun to watch. In this classic video, Bugs and Yosemite Sam race to be the first to summit the dangerous Schmatterhorn. During their ascent they run into all kinds of problems including rockfall, avalanches, and geographic impossibilities.
