Weekend Warrior - Videos to get you STOKED!!!

If you went to the Reel Rock Film Festival last year, you probably saw a film called "La Dura Dura" featuring Chris Sharma and Adam Ondra working on a climb in Oliana, Spain, that Chris bolted a few years back.  In spite of the climb being Chris' creation, he had pretty much dismissed the climb due to it's difficulty.  It wasn't until Adam gave it a try and lit a fire in Chris that renewed his interest.  Together, Chris and Adam spent 9 weeks working on the project and unlocking the sequences.  Here is the new, full video of the realized climb.

Professor Raphael Slawinski is not only a master of Physics, he is also a master of ice climbing.  When he is not teaching at the Mount Royal University in Calgary, AB, he is out in the mountains climbing.  As a nominee for National Geographic Adventurer of the Year, he has some great insight on what drives people to climb.

And last, but not least - we may have mentioned this earlier in the blog, but just in case you haven't heard yet - this weekend is RED ROCK RENDEZVOUS!!  This next video has some great highlights of all the fun from last year.  Hopefully you can make it out.

Have a great weekend! - James
