Great vid about climbing, about Derek Craig, and all sorts of goodness. Love it.
Some pretty sights, not a lot of climbing, but more insight into where Alex Honnold’s head is at when he’s not on a wall without a rope. Which is mostly sustainable living, neat.

A bouldery trad route.
Just amazing. Skip to 1:00 mark and on for the good fun. So lets see; now with snow shoes, another set of cams, and a new rope – I have to add a parachute to my gear list additions..life is fun.
(note, life is not fun if you’re a hitch-hiker with a crazy fuck driver who thinks he’s jesus)
around the 5:30 mark he goes over a simple concept I’m still just beginning to grasp; sizing your cam decision based on how much of your hand you can get in. Simple, but takes time. And this genius guy built a varying sized training wooden crack. Pretty sticken cool.
Looks like a killer trad line in Flagstaff, AZ.
A great overview regarding anchor setup on cordelette for multi-pitch trad. Thanks Gary!
Lady climbers crushing things. This should be a great feature.
This looks pretty amazing and well documented. These four gentlemen establishing Maria Rosa (7b, 500m) and Apichavai (8a+, 500m) on Amuri Tepui in Venezuela (trip log). They were on this giant Quartzite wall for upwards of two weeks.
Also a fun highline video by the same producer.
