Weekend Warrior - Videos to get you STOKED!!!

Prior to even leaving, locals suggested they should not attempt their journey.  They were coming to the end of the brief summer, and the fjords around Baffin Island were still choked with ice. But Paul McSorely, Tony Richardson, Joshua Lavigne and Crosby Johnston were still drawn to unclimbed 1,300 m North Face of Beluga Spire.

No-handed climbing?  Sure, it may be a bit on the pointless side.  But as Johnny Dawes points out, some people feel that way about climbing in general.  But after you watch Johnny dance up this gritstone problem, you might think differently.  If nothing else, it will help improve your footwork!

Since winter decided to come back (or in some cases, arrive) last weekend here in the Cascades, I thought I'd throw in a ski vid for you this weekend. Here's a season edit from Sam Schwartz as he backflipped through the 2014 - 2015 winter.

Have a great weekend! - James
