Weekend Warrior - Videos to get you STOKED!!!

AAI guide Tad McCrea just put this video together featuring some of the great climbing areas he's been out to recently, like Alaska, Patagonia, the Sierra, the Southwest and the Cascades.  Let us know if you would like to climb something you see here with Tad!

This next clip is a trailer for a new film about the development of climbing around Lander, WY.  It focuses on cragging around Sinks Canyon and Wild Iris, which were pioneered by Greg Collins and Todd Skinner, respectively.  Besides the great sport climbing, the Wind River Range near Lander is home to many amazing alpine peaks as well.

Lastly, Russian Valery Rozov recently made history with not only his climb of Mt. Everest but then his jump from the top!  With a specially designed wingsuit, he base-jumped from near the summit and reached speeds of over 120 mph!

Have a great weekend! - James
