Weekend Warrior - Videos to get you STOKED!!!

Renan Ozturk spent a lot of time in the spotlight last year after the release of his, Conrad Anker's and Jimmy Chin's film about their ascent of Meru Shark's Fin.  The trio's documentation of the climb won much acclaim for their striking cinematography.  The following clip is a highlight reel of Renan's prowess behind the camera.

One of the hottest ski movies of the 2011-2012 season was Sherpa Cinemas All.I.Can, and personally, my favorite segment was JP Auclair's street segment.  Click here in case you missed it.  Well, this year for the Pain McSchlonky (a "hilarious tribute to legendary skier Shane McConkey"), they made a great video spoofing the JP Auclair segment.  To read more about the event, click here.

The first time many of us noticed Magnus Midtbø was at the 2011 World Cup in Arco, Italy.  Soon after that, a video was released on Youtube titled "Insane Norwegian Climber" where we saw that super-ripped Norwegian kid cranking one-finger pullups and one armed pushups.  Recently, Magnus has been spending time in Spain working on Neanderthal (9b, 5.15b).  While waiting for the route to dry, he decided to hop on Ciudad de Dios (9a/+, 5.14d).

Renan Ozturk is a true artist. His films display the beautiful scenery of the mountains in a way no other can.
