Weekend Warrior - Videos to get you STOKED!!!

Psicobloc climbing (also known as deep-water soloing), was once the realm of sunny, warm days at the lake, river or ocean.  Well after the success of the first Psicobloc competition in Spain in 2011, Chris Sharma has decided to bring the competition to the US, and push it a step further. This time, it will be held at the Utah Olympic Park's 750,000-gallon freestyle aerial training pool and will feature a custom built wall by Walltopia.  The first video here is Chris talking about the development of the competition (which is held in conjunction with the Summer Outdoor Retailer Show in Utah).

This second video is of Chris and some other climbers doing some "test jumps" at the training pool.  The highest jumps are from over 50 feet up!

We are rapidly approaching one of the coolest times of the year - no, not temperature wise (it's pretty toasty out there in most places right now).  No, I am talking about Film Season!  We'll soon be seeing signs for Banff, Reel Rock, 5 Point, and a slew of other local outdoor film festivals.  This next clip is the trailer from "Our Own Way," a new ski film from Brotherhood Films.  Hopefully you get a chance to catch the full film when it makes the rounds in the tours.

I had to throw this in as well.  We all know that after a few days out climbing, we all can develop.... let's just say, "a little funk".  Well, with this great new cologne, you won't have to worry about that any more.  It looks like it helps with those top-roped dynos too!
