Weekend Warrior - Videos to get you STOKED!!!

I bet most climbers are a bit anxious about their first real big wall experience.  Do we have enough food and water?  Did we bring the right gear?  How long will it take?  Are we bringing too much?  It is easy to get bogged down by the uncertainty.  However, if you have as much fun as it looks like Rab athletes Jacob Cook and Bronwyn Hodgins did on their first climb of the Nose, all those worries should quickly melt away!

Adventure photographer Krystle Wright shares her thoughts about the risks of putting her body on the line for the lifestyle and job she loves, and joy she gets from the experience of meeting new people and capturing the fleeting moments that encapsulate the soul of a place.  I think her sentiments ring true for many of us in the climbing world as well.

Graham Zimmerman talks about his personal progression, in both his training and his climbing, leading up to his climb of the old Fred Beckey project "Titanic" with partner Clint Helander in Alaska's Revelation Range.

Have a great weekend! - James
