In our first video, we watch as Sarah Hueniken becomes the first women in North America to climb M12 as she completes "Musashi," a mixed route in Alberta's Cineplex Cave.
The snow is starting to fall on Mt. Baker, so I have to throw in some ski vids this weekend so we can stop thinking about the rain in town and start getting psyched about the fresh in the mountains. How about a new POV from Bellingham's own John Wells?

(Btw, the music from this video is from Ronald Jenkees, a self-taught musician who has posted many videos on Youtube of himself on the keyboard. This song is called "Stay Crunchy" and it's pretty amazing to see his fingers flying across the keys!)
And lastly, this video doesn't quite fall into the normal realm of Alpine Institute activities, but I thought that the emotion and feelings expressed are similarly found in the climbing world, and in life in general.
