The IFSC Bouldering World Cup closed last Saturday with the event in Munich, Germany. The competition awarded the World Cup titles to the Austrians Anna Stöhr -- winner of the World Championship in Arco -- and to Kilian Fischhuber, although neither of them stepped up for the first place in Munich. In the women's field, the Slovenian Mina Markovic gains the gold medal with 3 tops 3 out of 4; the home athlete Juliane Wurm, galvanized by her public, sends one boulder more than Anna Stöhr and thus gets the silver medal, with Stohr in third place. The Russian Dmitry Sharafutdinov, World Champion in Arco, shows again his great shape with four boulders climbed on first attempt; but most impressive is the fact that only Russian athletes are on the podium at the last bouldering competition of the year: Rustam Gelmanov is second, and Alexey Rubtsov is third.

I also brought along the new GH2 camera and the Noktor ƒ0.95 Lens to test them out. Still love the 5d, but I like the GH2 a lot too.

A Day in the Life of The Castle Route Setters from Ben Grubb on Vimeo.

If, like me, you live in a city somewhere with little or no access to rock, then chances are you climb indoors somewhere. The question is, have you ever wondered how all those routes and boulder problems get created? Well, here's how...

I spent a day with four of The Castle Climbing Centre's route setters while they reset the Mezzanine area (the largest bouldering area within the Castle, and with the largest amount of problems; usually around 25-30+ ranging from V0- to V8/9). This video is a hugely condensed version of a very long and intense day squeezed down into a little over four minutes, but gives a good overview of the process of stripping, setting and testing a bouldering area.

As a climber sometimes our biggest job is to try to do justice to the amazing stories of our friends and peers. For this piece I worked with our crew at camp4collective.com to tell thenorthface.com athlete Jimmy Chin's jimmychin.com story as he in turn highlights modern day climbing in Yosemite for a National Geographic feature story.

It seemed so serendipitous to be 'on assignment' in a place that we all cut out teeth as adventurers and which also ended up becoming the namesake of our collective!

As always, thanks for tuning in! ~reo

An Evening at Raven Tor with the Hamer brothers from Wild Country on Vimeo.

Wild Country and Red Chili climbers Ed and Sam Hamer talk about their climbing and their upcoming road trip while dispatching some Raven Tor classics... Ed and Sam are two bright prospects in UK climbing and as climbing brothers seem to get on remarkably well to make a strong team.
Ed, (known at the Wild Country office as 'the future' for his remarkable ability) has been on the on the British Junior competition team for many years, climbed 8b+ when he was 17, has climbed several gritsone E7's (blaming Tom Randall for that!!) and bouldered up to 8a+. At 19 he's in the last year of representing the Uk at Junior level and after coming 10th in Edinburgh in May at the Uk round of the 2011 IFSC European Youth Cup (EYC) is hoping to build on that over the next couple of months whilst on his road trip.
Sam's a strong all rounder who's was then picked for the British Junior climbing squad as well but in his own words "had a great time, but in the end realised that competitions were not for me and what I really wanted to do was climb on real rock! Which for me, is what it’s all about!!" Since then Sam, 22 been super active and has sent several E8's including My Piano and End of the Affair, on sighted up to E6 and has climbed 8b sports routes as well as bouldering up to 8a.
We're super psyched they're on our team and you can read more about them and see more videos here:

The Tooth Traverse from Camp 4 Collective on Vimeo.
Here are some pieces of the attempts Zack Smith http://www.aspenexpeditions.com/i-Zack-Smith-103.html, Freddie Wilkinson http://www.thenamelesscreature.com/ and myself, Renan Ozturk, http://rockmonkeyart.com have put into climbing the 'Tooth Traverse' of the Ruth Gorge, AK.

There has been a lot going on surrounding our adventures: The 1st attempt http://vimeo.com/6038303 was heavily embarked upon only days after the memorial for the deaths of our close friends http://vimeo.com/5065432, the 2nd attempt ended with helping with body recoveries of other climbers in the gorge http://www.thenamelesscreature.com/2010/07/25/a-hard-freeze-away/ and the just before our proposed launch day this past spring I almost died in a skiing accident http://vimeo.com/21904471.

Beyond the allure of enchaining one of the most iconic (& untrodden) skylines in NA the Tooth Traverse has come to represent so much more than that to us. With my healing going well (http://vimeo.com/26531646) and the inspiration (and angst) greater than ever we are planning another attempt in the NEAR future.

I see the eventual story breaching some pretty heavy topics involved in alpine climbing: sponsored vs. non-sponsored expeditions, dealing with death and the effect tackling dangerous objectives has on friends/family.

At any rate here is a little window into our work in progress. ~reo

Black Diamond athlete Renan Ozturk teamed up with Zack Smith and traveled to Alaska in late June 2009 to attempt a variety of climbing objectives, keeping their options open to the whims of weather, conditions and their stoke. Below is an excellent video the duo filmed during their ascents (a rarity in the world of alpine climbing where lightweight and speed typically take priority over documenting the adventure with video and photos).

Never before has a Petzl RocTrip mixed together so much climbing and local culture one simmering pot. We spiced it up with a few special ingredients: passion, fun, and shared experiences. The Petzl RocTrip 2010 in Mexico welcomed people from all corners of the world to the unique climbing destinations of El Chonta et Las Peñas de Jilotepec, with a stop at the Aztec pyramides of Teotihuacán.
