Weekend Warrior - Videos to get you STOKED!!!

The first video this weekend doesn't feature any amazing climbers crushing their projects, or any deep pillow lines, or any crazy acrobatics.  I think this first video features a different kind of stoke - for some it may be even more moving than the regular videos we post here.  Hopefully this gets you yearning to get outside and live your life.

For many of us, going to amazing places and seeing some breathtaking scenery are major factors in why we hike, ski, or climb.  For their latest project, Chris Sharma and Stefan Glowacz rappelled 160 meters into the belly of the Majlis al Jinn Cave in Oman.  Their reward:  13 pitches of overhanging roof climbing in a spectacular setting!

Another big reason to get outside is to have a great time with some great friends, and that's what the Salomon Crew is all about in their latest video.  They were hoping for powder turns, but got spring break conditions, so they made the best of it!

Whatever your reason is, we hope you get outside soon.  And if you need help getting there, give the Alpine Institute a call.

Have a great weekend! - James
