Weekend Warrior - Videos to get you STOKED!!!

Jeff Lowe was one of the greatest alpine climbers to come out of North America.  His bold lines and first ascents sky-rocketed him into climbing spotlight, but that was quickly followed up by a debilitating downfall.  "Metanoia" is the story of Jeff's will and determination, both in the alpine realm and in his battle against a much more challenging objective.

The next film here is a compilation of years of climbing throughout Patagonia, but also more than just climbing.  Mikey Shaefer has endured many adventures (and misadventures) in the area, including 7 First Ascents - one for each of the 7 iconic skyline spires - and along the way he has developed an amazing attachment to not just the people and the culture of the area, but to the place itself.  (Warning:  contains expletives)

Have a great weekend! - James
