Ashima Shiraishi - A Strong Mind (North Face)

Ashima Shiraishi - A Strong Mind (North Face)

Ashima Shiraishi is an American rock climber from New York City. At just 15 years old, she balances her time between high school, friends, and normal teenage activities in addition to rigorous training and competitions with other world-class athletes. While some attribute her success to her accomplishments as a young female athlete, many of the world's top climbers generally regard her as one of the best climbing athletes despite age and gender.

Daniel Woods and Dave Graham's Return to sport climbing in Norway

Daniel Woods and Dave Graham's Return to sport climbing in Norway

Norway's Hanshelleren cave contains one of the densest concentration of hard sport climbs in the world. It's not where you would expect to find two of America's strongest boulderers. In 2015 Daniel Woods and David Graham traded their pads for GRIGRIs, packed their ropes, and crossed the Atlantic in search of forearm pumps, kneebars, and Thor's own hammer.

Caroline Ciavaldini And James Pearson Explore The Best Climbing Destination You've Never Heard Of

Caroline Ciavaldini And James Pearson Explore The Best Climbing Destination You've Never Heard Of

James Pearson and Caroline Ciavaldini love getting off the beaten track, so when they heard about a climbing paradise in north-west Spain, they were intrigued enough to pay a visit. Armed with the Roca Verde guidebook (and some help from the locals) they discover huge tufa-strewn walls, super steep caves, perfect unpolished rock and very few climbers. In the first episode of Roca Verde Road Trip, James and Caroline check out the Desfiladero de La Hermida in western Cantabria, and the crags in eastern Asturias. These are lush, green valleys bordering the wild mountains of the Picos de Europa, and their huge rock walls are home to some fantastic sport crags. Braving icy rivers (and huge breakfasts) our intrepid duo check out some amazing new spots with freshly minted routes, as well as ticking some classics at more well-known venues, all in the shadow of the famous Naranjo de Bulnes.

Wild Country || Serendipity - A Spanish adventure

Jose moved to Sheffield in November 2012 from Spain. When he first arrived in the UK he wasn't expecting to do much outdoor climbing, he had heard about The Climbing Works the local bouldering gym and knew that the Peak District was close by. He was aware that a little bit of outdoor climbing could be found in the area flanking Sheffield but nothing particularly good...

This video illustrates Jose's discovery of UK climbing from bouldering to trad climbing and on to sport. His drive to experience the full flavour of climbing in the UK made him focus on classic lines recommended by local climbers and this video is highlighted with his ascents of:

Boulders:
Abre Los Ojos 7c+, Zombie Nation 7c+, Zarzamora 8a, Fuyu 7c+, West Side Story 7b+, The Terrace 7c, Brass Monkeys 7c, Deliverance 7b+, Brad Pit 7c, Not To Be Taken Away 6c, Black Crow 7c+, Beretta 7a+, Keen Roof 8b

Trad routes:
Big Air E6 6b, Ulysses E6 6b, Unfamiliar E8 6c, Balance It Is E7 6c, Meshuga E9 6c

Sport routes:
Mecca 8b+, True North 8c

Joe Kinder Sends Maquina Muerte

When it comes to sending hard projects, even the best climbers don't always know when—or even if—it's going to happen. You bring hope and intent and training...and then you go to work. For Black Diamond Athlete Joe Kinder, Maquina Muerte was that kind of climb. Steep and physical, the southern-Utah line is a testpiece of power and resolve, culminating in a "bastard undercling" that protects the crux. "This thing gave me grief," Joe says of making the 5.14+'s first ascent.

Steve McClure || Redpoint the UK's Hardest Route

Steve McClure || Redpoint the UK's Hardest Route

Steve McClure Attempts to Redpoint the UK's Hardest Route | HARDXS from Slackjaw Film, Ep. 12 (Epic TV).

Redpoint: climbing a route without falling after having practiced it on previous occasions. Even with practice a route can take days, months, or even years to redpoint. Along the way it can consume the mind of a climber and drive him nearly insane with frustration.

Steve McClure, one of Britain's finest climbers, knows the peculiar pressures and vexations of redpointing better than most. He finds the nightmare line of his dreams at Malham Cove in Yorkshire, England. In Euro climber-ese it's an 8a+ route followed by a hard boulder problem (Font 8a), followed by another, short, hard route (8a+ or 8b). Or, as McClure translates: "It's flippin' hard."

Follow the British legend as he struggles and obsesses over the project for nearly a year. By the time it's over you'll be almost as relieved as he is.

Ben Moon revisits Statement of Youth, 8a

To celebrate Statement's 30th birthday Ben travelled back to LPT to re-climb the route, Ben commented on making the first ascent of Statement of Youth on the Moon Climbing Website:

"It seems hard to believe but it was 30 years ago back in 1984, aged just 18 that I made the first ascent of the UK's 2nd 8a Statement of Youth. At the time it caused quite a stir in the climbing world not because of it's difficulty but because I had used 7 bolts to climb it. To those not familiar with climbing in the 1980s this might seem pretty strange but back then sport climbing in the UK didn't exist. Although it would take a few years this was all going to change and Statement played a big part in this change. During the past 30 years I have made several 1st ascents around the world but there are none that I am more proud of than Statement of Youth. Located at Lower Pen-Trwyn (LPT to most people) on the Great Orme in North Wales the route takes a line up the right-hand side of the steep left hand section of the cliff. With no particular crux section but very sustained at the grade it's a right of passage for the sport climber aspiring to the magical 8th grade."

Adam Ondra | Rock and Plastic

Adam Ondra | Rock and Plastic

Adam Ondra is having a hell of a year. In addition to onsighting 9a (5.14d)—something he's done twice in 2014—he's redpointed Biographie/Realization (5.15a, 9a+) and won both the bouldering and lead climbing World Championships. Never before has anyone won championships in both disciplines in the same year, and no one has imagined doing so while performing outdoors at the highest levels. The unprecedented achievements have left commentators grasping for suitable comparisons. There are none.

In this profile of the master of rock and plastic, filmmaker Bernardo Gimenez follows Ondra from high point to high point, taking in the redpoint of Biographie/Realization, the first ascent of Ira (9a) in Spain, and his championship performances.

Climbing legends Stefan Glowacz (Germany) and Chris Sharma (USA) team up to master a climbing route in the Majlis al Jinn cave in Oman. The route has never been attempted before and counts as the world’s longest roof climb with 13 pitches. Both athletes descended into the bowels of the earth into the giant Majlis al Jinn Cave to climb the probably biggest roof this planet has to offer. No one has taken on this challenge so far, the idea is unique. Glowacz and Sharma climbed from the bottom of the Majlis al Jinn Cave back to Earth’s surface.

Paul Robinson Sends Jaws II (9a+)

Paul Robinson Sends Jaws II (9a+)

I first tried Jaws in 2011 and quickly became obsessed with the route. Every so often over the past few years I would think about the line and wish I was there trying it. Fortunately this fall I had some time and wanted more than anything to make an ascent of this beautiful sweeping piece of schist in the forest outside of Rumney, New Hampshire. Alex and I flew here in the middle of the month and I quickly set to work on the climb. I spent day after day trying to figure out the crux sequence but kept hiking out from the cliff unsure of what I was doing wrong. I had thoughts of giving up but I decided the struggle would make it all the better in the end so I kept at it. I finally figured out the sequence that would work best for me and began making big links on the line! The end of the trip was fast approaching and I knew I would have to send soon! I spent two days falling off of the top and finally on October 30th, I managed to make the fifth ascent of Jaws II, 5.15a. This marks my hardest sport climb to date and a dream realized, to climb both v15 and 5.15. The psyche is high as I leave Rumney on a high note. I can't wait for more! ~Paul Robinson, prAna Ambassador

Sender Films || Origins - Joshua Tree, California

Welcome to our new series "Origins" -- a fun video concept developed with the crew at Evolv Shoes, and also sponsored by Mountain Gear. "Origins" focuses on climbing's rich history, following top athletes of today as they team up with their heroes from the past, and attempt to climb the iconic (and iconoclastic) routes of earlier generations.

The First "Origins" episode features two climbing stars: Kurt Smith, who put up some badass routes in Joshua Tree in 1988, and Chris Lindner, who was sending 5.12 routes when he was 5 years old. In this "Origins" episode, Chris sets out to climb Kurt's slab test-piece on The Dunce Cap, UNREPEATED for 22 years -- right in the heart of J-Tree climbing.

Directed by Rob Frost, and filmed by Frost with Russell Holcomb, this is a short film about Chris journey to do the second ascent of this forgotten Joshua Tree classic.

Sonnie Trotter || The Shadow

Sonnie Trotter || The Shadow

Do you remember your first, 5.9? 5.11? 5.13? Last summer I captured my friends first 5.13 on video.

The EPIC Shadow pitch of the Stawamus Chief is one of the most dramatic rock features on the planet.

Located in Squamish BC, the Shadow has an honest reputation for being intimidating. Rated 5.13 it can be described as a single hand to finger sized crack which is tucked into a steep dihedral extending for over 150 feet into the summer sky. The Shadow was cemented into North American Climbing history when legendary stone master Peter Croft first freed the route in 1988, onsight. Since then it's only been repeated a handful of times.

In this video big bad rad Jesse Huey from Seattle/Boulder battles up the double overhanging corners using grit, tenacity and imagination. His first attempt took 40 minutes before slipping off near the top. His successful burn, 3 hours later, with a pair of lucky shoes, took 45.

Join Jesse on his journey to the chains, from arm barring chimneys and finger-tip laybacks, to pure friction stemming, Jesse uses everything he has. Be sure to take notice of the massive rack on his harness during the opening scene, and also keep an eye open for his palm sweating catch at 6:50, and for the fall at 7:20.

On his second burn, as he nears the anchor at 9:40 watch for the tiny nut that falls out before he clips the ancient and suspect pin (yikes), and of course, enjoy his moment in the sun when he realizes his first 5.13 EVER, is non other than the World Class "Shadow" pitch of the University Wall.
