Turkey Petzl Rock Trip

From October 14 to 19, the 2014 Petzl RocTrip embalmed itself in mythology. By closing out the tour in the ancient region of Olympos, Turkey, it went all out for the grand finale. From deep-water soloing to the chimera's flame, by way of archaeological marvels and nights at 150 bpm, RocTrippers played in perfect harmony with the earth, air, water, and fire!

Black Rocks

Climbers have been coming to Black Rocks, once known as Stonnis, for 125 years. They've always found the climbing desperate and they've always said that they'd never come back. This is a film about those who do return and the special routes that make them glad that they did. Filmed over the course of year by Mike Cheque chequepictures.com.

Tommy Caldwell TedX

Tommy Caldwell is a big-wall free climber, over 19 days in early 2015 he completed the first-ever free climb of the Dawn Wall at El Capitan. Tommy's talk raises an interesting question: why do some people experience post-traumatic growth? Tommy credits his father who understood the idea of raising kids with grit long before it became a parenting buzzword; believing you must prepare your child for the path, not the path for your child.” His subsequent free climbing accomplishments on El Capitan – the Mecca of the pursuit – remain unmatched, and most of his peers consider Caldwell the best all-around rock climber in the world.

Meru Trailer

In the high-stakes pursuit of big-wall climbing, the Shark's Fin on Mount Meru may be the ultimate prize. Sitting 21,000 feet above the sacred Ganges River in Northern India, the mountain's perversely stacked obstacles make it both a nightmare and an irresistible calling for some of the world's toughest climbers. In October 2008, renowned alpinists Conrad Anker, Jimmy Chin and Renan Ozturk arrived in India to tackle Meru. Their planned seven-day trip quickly devolved into a 20-day odyssey in sub-zero temperatures with depleting food rations. Within 100 meters of the elusive summit, their journey - like all previous attempts - fell short of the goal. Heartbroken and defeated, the trio returned to their everyday lives, where the siren song of Meru continued to beckon. By September 2011, Anker had convinced his team to reunite and undertake the Shark's Fin once more, under even more extraordinary circumstances. MERU is the story of that journey, an expedition through nature's harshest elements and one's complicated inner demons, and ultimately on to impossible new heights.

The Constant Gardener

MHW athletes Cheyne Lempe and Ethan Pringle explore the crack systems on the north face of higher Cathedral Rock in Yosemite, an area that is seldom climbed due to a challenging approach and constant gardening.“I started seeing the lines in between the lines. I’ve been craving this absolute mystery of being up on the rock and not knowing if we’re going to get to the top.”

Emily Harrington sends Golden Gate

She’s been trad climbing for only three years, but The North Face & Petzl Athlete, Emily Harrington didn’t let that sway her from the magnetic pull of El Capitan’s ‘Golden Gate’ (5.13 VI). 6 days and 40 pitches later, she stood on the summit with broken skin, aching muscles and a smile that stretched across Yosemite Valley. Here Emily shows us that it’s just as much about the journey as it is the destination.

Wideboyz in Norway

Last month, Pete and I were invited on a trip to Norway to lecture at the infamous Ballestein Festival. What was even more exciting than the promised crazy Norwegian climbing festival, was the assurance that we’d have time to make a visit to try Nico Favresse’s Recovery Drink on the Profile Wall in Jøssingfjord. As a route suggested to be perhaps the hardest crack on the planet.

Sharma Climbs a Redwood

In a quest to return to his climbing roots and to advance the understanding of California’s giant Coast Redwoods, Chris Sharma recently embarked on an unprecedented free climb in a Northern California forest glade. Using only his hands and feet and protected from falls by a rope and harness, Sharma collected valuable data from a soaring Redwood, located in a city park in Eureka, to measure tree water status as an indicator of how it has been affected by the current severe drought. Red Bull worked closely with two UC Berkeley Tree Biologists in preparing for and executing this project. The UC Berkeley tree biologists are currently developing funding to evaluate the impact of the current historic drought on redwood trees and forests in the Santa Cruz Mountains near the southern edge of the redwood range; a link to their fundraising site can be found here: win.gs/rgad
