Old Man of Hoy (BBC outside broadcast)

The Great Climb : The Old Man of Hoy outside broadcast

On 8-9 July 1967, 15 million people watched one of the most audacious BBC outside broadcasts ever undertaken - the climbing of the 'Old Man of Hoy'. A team of six climbers was filmed ascending a spectacular 450-foot sea stack off the Orcadian island of Hoy in a live broadcast that has been likened to an early example of what we now know as 'reality television'. The programme featured three pairs of climbers: Bonington and Patey repeated their original route, whilst two new lines were climbed, by Joe Brown and Ian McNaught-Davis, and by Pete Crew and Dougal Haston.

As academic Paul Gilchrist has described the groundbreaking event: "It connected an armchair audience with the elite of a sport subculture intent on conquering one of Britain's most spectacular geological treasures".

La última aventura de David Lama se llama 'Avaatara'. Con este nombre bautizó su encadenamiento, una ruta de 9a abierta en el cañón de Baatara, en el Líbano.

A David le recordó a la película 'Avatar', y de ahí su nombre

Arctic Dreams

, four very excited South Africans and one grumpy Scottish sea dog set sail for the adventure of their lives. After crossing the Atlantic from Scotland, the team did several big wall climbs on the west coast of Greenland and north coast of Baffin Island. The most notable ascent was Improbability Drive on Impossible Wall in Greenland, a new free route that took nine days of continuous living on the wall to complete.

The team then spent another 3 months on Dodo's Delight (their 33ft fiberglass sailboat) winding their way through the Arctic islands of Northern Canada to complete the Northwest Passage to Alaska.

The project is sponsored by First Ascent Clothing, Beal, Black Diamond and Saltic, Mountain Club of South Africa, Gina Watkins Memorial Trust, Shipton Tillman Goretex Award, Clif Bar, Vega Products and Five Ten.

In the harsh desert of the American Southwest, famed climbers Alex Honnold and Cedar Wright summited 45 rock towers, biked 700 miles, and pushed their bodies to the limits, all in the name of an adventure they aptly dubbed "Sufferfest."

Eureka Wall w/ Hazel and Alex

In March 2015, Hazel Findlay and Alex Honnold visited Australia to climb at Mount Arapiles and The Grampians. We caught up with them, just a few days before their departure, at the awesome Eureka Wall in the Southern Grampians to hear about their trip and check out some new and old classics. Unfortunately, Hazel's shoulder injury prevented her from leading anything on the day but we look forward to her post-surgery return sometime in the future!

Climbs featured: Archimedes Principle, Pavlov's Dog, Pythagoras' Theorem.

Radiohead - Climbing Up the Walls - Sub Español

"Ed O'Brien sintió que la atmósfera gótica del tema más siniestro de Radiohead fue el resultado de grabar en la biblioteca de St. Catherine's Court (luego Yorke diría que la casa estaba embrujada). La percusión, lisa y plana, señalan las influencias krautrock que llegarían a su máximo en Hail To The Thief y las letras de Yorke parecen venir de la mente perturbada de un asesino serial (Abre tu calavera, allí estaré). Así mismo, la inspiración del espeluznante final de cuerdas fue el compositor moderno Krzysztof Penderecki, cuyos trabajos también aparecen en la banda sonora de The Shining de Stanley Kubrick. [Marzo 2008]
La sección de cuerdas, interpretada solo por Jonny, posee 16 violines tocando a un cuarto de tono de diferencia.
"Climbing up the walls" significa estar tensionado, desesperado, enojado, que estás haciendo figurativamente lo imposible

Park Life - Yosemite Bouldering

Jon Krakauer wrote, "In any human endeavor, some fraction of it's practitioners will be motivated to pursue that activity with such concentrated focus and unalloyed passion that it will consume them utterly. As a result of this infatuation, existence overflows with purpose. Through immoderation, he experiences something akin to rapture."
Yosemite Valley has long been regarded as the holy land for climbers and boulderers throughout the world. The origins of rock climbing lie in the 3000-foot granite walls lining the valley and the boulders that sit strewn about below these staggering monoliths.
In the late weeks of November, the Louder Than 11 crew gathered from all corners of the country to experience Yosemite Valley bouldering. As a group of passionate individuals, we enveloped ourselves in the landscape for two weeks, attacking boulders as if tomorrow would never come. On the surface, the very foundation of our identities is built on rock climbing—a sport that we believe is the greatest on the planet—but there is much more to this seemingly inherent addiction than meets the eye.
With Park Life, we strive to answer this age-old, omnipresent question: Why? By combining difficult climbing, captivating visuals, and engaging music under the all-encompassing umbrella of a professional production company, we hope to portray a unique lifestyle that has given us all a palpable sense of unwavering purpose. The long-lasting friendships, incessant failure and equally abundant success, reckless commitment and dedication driven to the point of complete and utter irresponsibility; it's an eternal battle. We do it because we love it. At LT11 our media is always free, whether you like it or not.


Rutledge uno de los astronautas del Apolo 20 afirma que ellos (con el cosmonauta soviético, Lexei Leonov) desembarcaron un módulo Lunar (hecho en rusia) cerca de la nave extraterrestre y que realmente entrarón en él. Ciertos artefactos fueron descubiertos y recuperados, incluyendo dos cuerpos que alegaba eran los "pilotos"-- uno estaba en excelente condición y parecía ser femenina. Un segundo cuerpo estaba demasiado deteriorado para ser recuperado y solo se recuperó la cabeza. La ser femenina ha sido nombrada, "Mona Lisa".

"Entramos en el interior de la gigantesca nave espacial, y también entramos en otra nave triangular que se encontraba dentro de la gran nave. La exploración determinó que se trataba de una nave nodriza muy antigua, que navegó el espacio hace por lo menos 1.5 millones de años. Habían muchas señales de biología en su interior, encontramos vestigios de antiquísima vegetación en una especie de "motor" en la sección donde estaban. También encontramos rocas especiales triangulares que emitían "lágrimas" de un líquido amarillo que aparentemente tienen algunas propiedades medicinales especiales y por supuesto, restos de otras criaturas extra solares".

This is KiteSURFING

Patagonia ambassador Reo Stevens gives us an in depth look into making the most out of marginal conditions. Kitesurfing is not a replacement for surfing, simply an extension of it; the conditions for one are only ideal when they are not for the other. By using the kite as a means to harness one of surfing's imperfections, surfers can increase their water time and maximize their wave count. Other riders include Keahi De Aboitiz, Ian Alldredge and Patrick Rebstock.

James Pearson Repeats Italian E9 Trad Route "Is Not Always Pasqua" | Epi...

It maybe be a bit chilly in most parts of Europe but in the reasonably balmy conditions of central Italy, James Pearson has made a free ascent of Mauro Calibani's route, 'Is not always Pasqua', at Collina di Interprete.

The route was first climbed in 2002 after the first ascensionist had watched the legendary film 'Hard Grit' and had been over to the Peak District to sample it for himself, before returning to Italy to climb 'Is not always'. He graded it E9 7a (hard) and it has only been repeated once before this, by Christian Brenna.
