Some Petzl sponsored climbers including Dave Graham, Dani Andrada, and Paul Robinson boulder around Macedonia using the new line of Petzl Crash Pads. Along with the great bouldering we even see a quadcopter rescue! Enjoy!

Jimmy Webb and Daniel Woods conquer South Africa

Jimmy and Daniel are in South Africa for the next several weeks taking advantage of the winter temps in the southern hemisphere. They’ve already gotten busy repeating some of the hardest lines the area has to offer, as well as putting up some new ones. We should see a new 8C or two by the end of this trip!

Daniel Woods on a new problem he put up in South Afirca, “Welcome to Jamrock” (8B)

Alex Honnold-Live True

I don’t believe Alex Honnold does much drinking, but if representing a brand of Scotch Whiskey allows him to continue his climbing career more power to him. In this short add video, we see Alex go about his day, talking about his van and life as a climber…also whiskey. Enjoy!

Jimmy Web, Dave Graham, some boulders and a shotgun.

 

You can head over to Epictv.com to watch a new short video of Dave Graham, Jimmy Webb, Jan Hojer, Michael O’Rouke, Isabelle Faus, and Chad Greedy pulling down on some hard projects and…shooting trees with a shotgun?? I’m not really sure what the ethics are like up in the Secret Garden, but I don’t think anyone would be to happy if I started blasting off rounds at the local crag. To each his own I guess?

Nalle Hukkataival sends what is possibly his hardest problem yet?

Nalle Hukkataival sends 13 year-old project.

Nalle has been throwing down a lot of hard ascents near Maltatal, Austria lately and this one may be his hardest ever. A known project for about 13 years, the sit start to Bügeleisen climbs up a large, overhanging block of stone. Having to fight poor weather conditions over the past few years, Nalle finally found the fitness and conditions necessary to take this project down. In a Facebook post Nalle says the this line “could be the hardest thing I’ve climbed”. That’s saying a lot considering his recent ascent of Gioia, a problem that’s been given the rating of V16 by both its first ascensionist, and Adam Ondra who nabbed the second ascent!
