Barn Burner Comp 2009 (short version) from Daniel Alexander on Vimeo.

In October 2009 the Red Barn Climbing Center at the Rochester Institute of Technology held its second Barn Burner Bouldering Competition where climbers competed for 12 hours from 9pm to 9am. This is what happened.

This is the short edit for RIT SportsZone sports television show that aired on ESPN2 and TWCSN Rochester. www.ritsz.com

I filmed a lot more footage and am in the process of editing a longer version with more info on the entire process of setting the routes and running the competition. Should be done sometime in the near future.

First Ascent features today's top rock climbers as they lay siege to steep faces and soaring alpine walls in pursuit of climbing's pinnacle achievement - the First Ascent.

The Upper Playground from erik danielson on Vimeo.

We made the steep trek to upper Lost Cove in late February of 2010. The blocs were dry and we were able to climb outside in town for the first time in almost two months. We drove down 221 first but it was cold and snowy... upper Lost Cove it was. The boulders are way up at the top and you get a sweet view of big Lost Cove from the spot. 1st up Nathan brushed up this rad hueco line... it ended up cleaning up real nice.

Next, up the hill to Downward Dog V10 a line first climbed by Pat Goodman. Pat is an accomplished international climber... and he's been doing his thing for a long time. He's put a lot of work when it comes to first ascents and this is just one of countless lines he's helped establish. A little brushing later and Nate hooked it up... donde!

By this point fog rolled in and its windy. We walk up the hill and there is still a foot of snow on the ground. Well... the problem was dry, sorta. Apocalypse Prow V7 is legit! Nathan took a swim and donde! It's a wrap! Upper playground!
2010年2月終わりに急な斜面を登ってLost Coveの上の方へ行ってみた。岩は乾いていて、ここ2ヶ月の間で初めて外で登ることができた。最初、221を車で下ったが、寒くて雪が降っていた。それがLost Coveだった。岩は山頂のにあって、そこからLost Coveを見渡す眺めが素晴らしい。Nathanがラインを掃除したらとてもよくなった。
次にさらに上のDownward Dog(V10)を登った。Pat Goodmanによって最初に登られたラインだ。Patは熟達した国際的なクライマーだ。彼は新しいラインを初登するのに熱心で、このラインは彼が完成に協力した数え切れないラインの一つに過ぎない。少し掃除して、Nateが登った。
この時点で霧があたりを覆って風が強くなってきた。丘を登ると、地面が雪で覆われていたが、その課題は乾いていた。Apocalypse Prow (V7)は正統派の課題だ。Nathanはすぐに登った。高級な遊び。

■The Game, World's Hardest Boulder Problem?

The Game, World's Hardest Boulder Problem? from Cedar Wright on Vimeo.

Watch Daniel Woods working what very well may be the hardest boulder problem in the country if not the world! If Daniel's estimation is correct, this is the first V16 in the country and arguably the universe!!! Produced for The North Face http://neverstopexploring.com/ I shot and edited this piece in collaboration with Big Up Productions http://www.bigupproductions.com/ and Sender Films http://www.senderfilms.com/ The Full Send will be featured in this years Reel Rock Tour http://reelrocktour.com/ See my other work at http://verticalcarnival.blogspot.com/ The back story....I first met Daniel Woods about 5 years ago while in Rocklands Africa. Daniel already had a reputation as a steel fingered bouldering phenomena, and watching him crush in the boulders was about as close as I've come to witnessing the defiance of gravity. When Daniel mentioned on a facebook post that he had a new super project up in Boulder Canyon, and felt he might be close to "the hardest moves I've ever tried", I figured it might be a cool moment to film and so I rang him up! For the last two weeks I have been braving the 30 degree temps and shooting Daniel's process and progress. Today in spite of a broken hold and a nasty fall, Daniel sucked it up, figured out new beta and SENT!!! "This is definitely harder than Terremer, and Jade, and I think warrants the grade of V16" he said. If Daniel's estimation is right, this puts "The Game" as a competitor for hardest boulder in the world!!! Daniel had this to say, "I called this problem The Game, because for me the climb was a game I had to play, I had to click into game mode, and really train myself for these moves. I had to grow mentally strong and also physically strong to be able to put it together. I call it the game, because I played the game and I ended up winning the game so game over." A little inside information... one of Daniel's favorite rappers is also named "The Game!"

Hace poco tuvimos la oportunidad de entrevistar a Alex Huber uno de los más grandes escaladores y alpinistas del mundo. Todo gracias a la gente de la Panxa del Bou. Compartir un rato con una persona que, junto a su hermano (los dos forman el Huberbuam), ha ascendido por las montañas y las vías más extraordinarias del mundo, fue realmente increible. Afortunadamente, la gente que está relacionada con el mundo de la montaña no tiene nada que ver con otras disciplina deportivas, como por ejemplo el futbol. Así que disfrutad de la entrevista. Gracias, Alex.

DAV Deutscher Bouldercup 07.02.2010 (ISPO, Neue Messe München) from Deti on Vimeo.

This is almost uncut raw footage - please do not complain ;-)

Auftakt zum Bouldercup: Siege für Luisa Neumärker und Thomas Tauporn

Das Ergebnis war ebenso knapp wie überraschend: Mit Luisa Neumärker vom Sächsischen Bergsteigerbund und Thomas Tauporn von der DAV Sektion Schwäbisch Gmünd setzten sich die Zwölftplatzierte und der Neuntplatzierte der Bouldercup-Gesamtwertung des vergangenen Jahres durch. Die Favoriten Juliane Wurm und Stefan Danker belegten beim Auftaktwettbewerb zum diesjährigen Bouldercup am Sonntag, 7. Februar, im Rahmen der Internationalen Sportartikelmesse (ispo) auf dem Messegelände München die Plätze zwei und drei.

Dabei lief es für Neumärker und Tauporn im Halbfinale nicht perfekt: Beiden gelang jeweils ein Boulder weniger als den Favoriten. Im Finale setzten sie sich dann aber denkbar knapp durch. Thomas Tauporn machte es besonders spannend: Nachdem er den letzten Boulder im ersten Versuch souverän durchstiegen hatte und schon wie der sichere Sicher aussah, wurde dieser Versuch von den Schiedsrichtern nachträglich für ungültig erklärt, weil er beim ersten Zug mit einem Fuß den Boden touchierte. In der restlichen Zeit gelang ihm kein Durchstieg mehr. Hätte der nach ihm kletternde Stefan Danker den Boulder geschafft, wäre er als Sieger aus dem Wettkampf gegangen. Mehrmals sprang er jedoch knapp am entscheidenden Griff vorbei.

Der Wettkampf war der erste von vier Bouldercup-Terminen. Es folgen Kitzbühel am 23./24. April, Köln am 22./23. Mai und Überlingen am 7./8. August.

■Rock Climbing - The Spirit of Squamish

Rock Climbing - The Spirit of Squamish from Tourism Squamish on Vimeo.

Video shot in and around Squamish, BC Canada - the Outdoor Recreation Capital of Canada.

Squamish is one of the worlds top rock climbing destinations. This is largely due to the deliciously sticky granite that is found all over town. Most famous of course is the Stawamus Chief, the second largest granite monolith in the world with enough routes to keep anyone busy for years. Here routes range from casual scrambles to 5.14 test pieces. Add this to the countless legendary boulders around town and you literally have a climbing paradise.

It’s safe to say that if you’re just starting out, or have been at it for years; you’ll find something to satisfy your rock climbing needs.

It's come down to the wire. Matt's foot and ankle took longer than expected to heal. He couldn't climb again until this winter, but in his free time he went to work redesigning the anti cam. Now he's got three shiny pieces of gear, a renewed enthusiasm and a date with the guillotine flake.

That's it. That's all. After a year and half of work, the Season winds down, but not before we catch up with Matt as he tries to free climb the guillotine flake high on the grand wall.

■A Portrait of Fred Nicole

A Portrait of Fred Nicole from Prana Living on Vimeo.

Swiss climber Fred Nicole has been bouldering at the leading edge of pure difficulty for over 25 years, continuing to redefine human possibility. His prolific tick list spans decades and the world, ranging from V13 to the almost supernatural grade of V16.

Fred was the first to boulder V13 and also V14, although he does not assign grades to his own problems, relying on consensus from other climbers. Fred sees climbing as an art form, where a person can express ones self through movement.

Short film of some of the problems we did on a recent trip to Font. I learnt how to use Sony Vegas on this film, so its a bit rusty and not fully polished.

Amy Morrison at Blowing Rock Boulders from dalton hilfinger on Vimeo.

Amy Morrison braved the cold weather on Friday Jan 29, 2010 and made the decision spend a couple hours at the Mushroom boulder located a short five minute walk from the parking lot in Blowing Rock, NC. It was cold... 36* and might have been colder at the boulder. The goal was to film her on a couple of warm-ups and sent projects. The final result is a short about her day at Blowing Rock.

■Chris Sharma: The Legacy Continues

Chris Sharma: The Legacy Continues from Prana Living on Vimeo.

Chris Sharma's meteoric climbing career started when he won the Bouldering Nationals at age 14 and opened the hardest climb in America (at the time, 5.14c) a year later. In the decade that followed, Chris has continued to take climbing to a new level. Not only has he consistently shattered previous conceptions of difficulty, he was recently voted 8a Climber of the Decade. He has sent multiple 5.15 routes, bouldered V15, onsighted 5.14b, and established deep water solo routes at the highest grades. Chris holds claim to the current hardest route in America, and perhaps the world, with his ascent of Jumbo Love at Clark Mountain in California. Chris has a lot on his plate this year with a new house in Spain, establishing a string of 5.15 routes and climbing almost daily with his girlfriend Daila Ojeda. The area around their home is considered one of the hotspots for the sport globally with more than 70 crags featuring steep limestone caves and seemingly endless possibilities. It looks like Chris will have plenty of time to perfect his Spanish accent...
