Weekend Warrior - Videos to get you STOKED!!!

Alizée Dufraisse has made ​​the first female ascent of "El món de Sofia" (8b+/c, 5.14a) in El Pati. Alizée has been in Siurana, Spain, since the holidays, where she spent most of the winter trying to send her super-project.  The El Pati area is famous for other big climbs, like "La Rambla" which was first climbed by Alex Huber in 1994.

This next clip is of a soaking wet rare ascent of Cascade de l'Oule, Vallée du Grésivaudan, 280m, Grade V+ by Erwan Lelann and Arnáud Guillaume.  The waterfall flows down from St. Hilarite du Touvet, which is a commune only accessible by an inclined railway called a furnicular.

Here's another first ascent video for this weekend.  Carlo Traversi sent his project, a stout V13 called "The Reflecting Pool" in Red Rock Canyon, NV.  AAI will have a bunch of guides down in the Red Rock area in the next two weeks for Mountain Gear's Red Rock Rendezvous.  If you would like to climb with us in Red Rock, be sure to contact Tim Page at

Have a great weekend! - James
