"Fall. From Glory to Grace."
A short film that chronicles the events surrounding a huge fall taken by an ice climber in New Hampshire.

In the last 10 years, Vennon has risen to become one of the top female sport climbers in the U.S. while holding down a full-time job as a Kindergarten teacher. “I love Kindergarten,” Vennon says. “Those kids are the only people who think I’m funny.”
She is one of the few women to have ticked the elusive 5.14 grade in Rifle with her recent (second female) ascent of the 7 P.M. Show (5.14a), in addition to ticking off some difficult, sandbagged 5.13d’s there as well such as Living in Fear, Gropius, Simply Read and Slice of Life. Vennon, however, likes to say that her weakness in climbing is her “weakness,” and that “if there’s an easier way to do a move, you’ll be sure I will figure it out.” Climbing for her isn’t about competitive performance, but rather it’s a lifestyle and a way to be outdoors, testing her personal limits in the natural world.
Namaste translates as the "inner light in me salutes the inner light in you", or "Hi."
This is a two hour speed edit that captures the vibe of the Khumbu Climbing School that I put together to show the students on their graduating night.

This past fall, Black Diamond athletes Dave Macleod and Tim Emmett ventured to the ultra-scenic crags of Pembroke, South Wales, a place known not only for its bold, beautiful lines on striking seaside cliffs, but for its notoriously finicky conditions that can make redpointing an exercise in extreme patience. The video gives an intimate look at the intricacies of UK climbing and details Dave and Tim's efforts on some of Pembroke's best (and headiest) routes, including Dave Pickford's The Brother Karamazov (E9 6c).

This video includes a flash ascent of the route Infinity Lane by Chris Sharma that took place during the Petzl Roctrip Millau 2009, in Gorges de La Jonte.
Chris flashed the 90-meters route, graded 8b+ (14a).
Infinity Lane is a something new we thought up for the 2009 Millau Natural Games. The two Ultimate Routes, located at the Cathédrale in the Gorges de la Jonte (Aveyron, France), are actually three-pitch sport lines that the participants have to link together into one long, single pitch. The grade is about 8a (90 meters) for the women and 8b+ (90 meters) for the men. Climbers had four days to link the route. They weren't allowed to work the moves - once a climber fell, she or he was lowered to the ground and had to start over from the beginning the next day.
Martina Cufar and Florence Pinet both onsighted the Women's Ultimate Route. Dani Andrada and Mickaël Fuselier made it almost to the top before falling near the anchors on the men's route. However it took Chris Sharma only one try to get to the top...

Black Diamond athlete Fred Nicole is a true master boulderer, having been at the forefront of the sport for more than two decades. Soft-spoken and thoughtful, he has developed benchmark problems from Hueco Tanks to Rocklands to Fontainebleau to his home forests of Switzerland, all in with his trademark silent, graceful power. An icon to boulderers around the world, Fred Nicole was a perfect fit to filmed by Bernado Gimenez for the BD Video Profile series.
Nicole took Gimenez on a tour of some of his off-the-radar spots in Switzerland and sagely spoke about his philosophies in climbing and in life. A personal and unique profile, this video is truly a special window into the world of one of climbing's great ambassadors.
Steph Davis says: "Thanks very much to Sender Films for this footage and edit of Learning To Fly, at Indian Creek. It's a steep, physical crack and it's power-endurance climbing. When I got to the anchor, I wanted to throw up. :) Lots of yelling on this one."
3rd day working a new boulder problem Fantasia, 8b+ (V14) near Morrison, Colorado in early February, 2011. Apparently Daniel Woods has snagged the FA on this strenuous boulder problem.
Black Diamond athlete Paul Robinson tore it up in Fall 2010 on the granite boulders of Switzerland, ticking off multiple problems in the 8B and above range, including a couple 8Cs (one, a first ascent). BD sent ace lensman Bernardo Gimenez up to Switzerland to capture some of Robinson’s bouldering sendage, as well as develop a video profile of Robinson that would showcase his personality and drive.
After a few solid days of effort, Arc'teryx team athlete, Jonathan Siegrist sent a new line at Red River Gorge, naming it "24 Karats", and at the grade of 5.14c, it is one of America's harder sport climbs.

To make waiting for the movie shorter, here is a small preview of the shots from Siurana, Spain of Adam Ondra trying two very different 9b routes. First he tries an unclimbed, bouldery project and then an amazing line from Chris Sharma - Golpe de Estado (9b).
