Here we see the full video of Alex Honnold and Cedar Wright’s 2013 grueling trip through California, where they biked to and climbed all of California’s 14k foot mountains.
In this new video we get to see Nalle’s ascent of one of the hardest boulder problems in the world Gioia in Varazze, Italy. The problem is rated 8C+(V16). Nalle contends that this is indeed one of the hardest boulder problems he has ever done, but questions whether it is a full grade harder than most 8C’s already out there.
In a video by Cameron Maier American strong men Daniel Woods and Jimmy Webb attack a classic new hard-line in Las Vegas’ Red Rock Canyon.
Watch Dave Graham battle rain and try bouldering projects in the beautiful Grampians of Australia. The month long trip in 2011 culminated with his first ascent of Wave Swoop(V14)
Follow Daniel Woods along with fellow strong man Jimmy Webb and videographer Cameron Maier (Bearcam) through a day in Bishop, CA. From Bouldering to Beers this video is more than enough to make many of us envious of their lifestyle.
In a new series from Black Diamond, Alex Honnold talks about the aspect of “risk” in the climbing, and everyday activities, he does.
Head over to The Island to check out Dave Graham working on the unrepeated Daniel Woods testpiece, Hypnotized Minds (8C) in Rocky Mountain National Park!
Two days ago Daniel Woods nabbed the FA of the sit-start variation of Dave Graham’s “The Ice Knife” (8B+). Below are Daniel’s thoughts on the problem from his 8a. The video is of Paul and Daniel climbing the stand-start.
“The epic is finally over! 13 days of battling with conditions and falling off of every move (including the final v2 move), implanted doubt in my mind if this thing was going to go down this year. Dave put up the stand 2 years ago and it has settled at hard 8B+. The sit adds in a powerful and awkward 4 move 8A+ into the 8B+ with no rest. The style of this boulder is different than anything I have climbed on. The holds require good friction and the movement is off balance and weird. It is such a beautiful boulder and now the full line is complete! This is my hardest boulder that I have done within my style of climbing. Numbers are so subjective, so for someone else, this could not be so hard. I know it is my personal best and will leave it at that.”
Seems like most of climbing’s elite athletes choose to spend what would be the summer months in the Northern Hemisphere, climbing in cooler temps in the Grampians. Here’s a video of Nalle Hukkataival getting his climb on down under! Enjoy!
Edit: thought this was new, looks like it’s from 2011, still great climbing!
Chris Sharma recently spent some time in the Grampians of Australia, climbing some of the classic lines on some of the best Sandstone in the world. One climb featured in the video is Grove Train(33/8c/5.14b) there is also a short snippet of Chris bouldering what looks like The Wheel of Life(V15). Pretty sweet!
