Weekend Warrior - Videos to get you stoked!

A few weeks back I posted a video of "The most difficult big wall climb on Earth," as the title proclaimed. I highly apologize for providing false information, but I blame Tommy Caldwell and Kevin Jorgeson for proving me wrong. The video below takes a little while to load, but if you are patient you will be treated to the duo working what is "likely" one of the hardest (if not the hardest) big wall free climbs in the world. If this isn't enough, get some dessert by checking out Part 2 of the video and the 8-foot dyno in the middle of a big wall route.

VIDEO Part 1: BD athletes Tommy Caldwell and Kevin Jorgeson attempting to free El Cap's hardest climb from Black Diamond Equipment on Vimeo.

I've been debating whether or not to put this next video up, but not for lack of stoke. Let me make it clear that we in no way affiliate ourselves with Yvon Chouinard's company or spin-off companies, or those of American Express. With that said, Yvon is super inspirational in this video, and I want to be climbing when I'm his age. The last line, really gives me chills, "To do good you actually have to do something."
