Weekend Warrior - Videos to get you STOKED!!!

We've showed a few videos before of slackliner "Sketchy" Andy Lewis.  But his latest feat has taken slacklining to new heights - literally.  After practicing first at 10' off the ground and again at 600' up, Andy has become the first person ever to slackline between two hot air ballons.  At 4000' in the air, he was able to walk between the baskets of two balloons high above the Nevada desert before BASE jumping off the line.

Speaking of Nevada, the AAI crew is getting prepped for a little climbing event that we like to go to.  You may have heard of it?  It's only one of the best climbing events in the nation!  It's Red Rock Rendezvous!  AAI will have guides around before, during, and after the event, and we have plenty of courses going on as well as private guided climbing available.  Everything from learning to tie in for the first time to long, multi-pitch classics like Epinephrine.  Here's just a taste of what AAI has to offer in Red Rock.  If you like you see here, give us a call at 360-671-1505 or email us at to make a reservation.

Don't think that Red Rock is only roped climbing.  There are plenty of options for you boulderers out there too.  Paul Robinson recently got a third ascent and a new first ascent of some amazing boulder problems in Red Rock.  And as he mentions, there is still a huge number of first ascents waiting out there.


Have a great weekend! - James
