Weekend Warrior - Videos to get you stoked!

I have a piece of gear that I don't think I deserve, my chalk bag. Nothing really separates this chalk bag from others in design and function, other than the graphic on the front of it - Thomas the Tank Engine. I didn't purchase it due to the graphic, more due the price - however the idea of "I think I can, I think I can," from The Little Engine That Could inspiring me while on the sharp end was a good one. Here is a young guy, Adam Ondra, who seems to follow a similar through process of, "I think it's possible."

Adam Ondra - "I think it's possible" from Alberto Malinverni on Vimeo.

I feel like it is lazy of me to post two videos of the same guy, but Adam climbs really smoothly in my opinion. The optical quality of this video, the sweet remixed song, the fluidity of Ondra's movement in slow motion, and the beauty of his belayer's eyes combine to create something I could watch many times over. Enjoy.
