Ice Fall Wrecking Ball
The first rule of ice climbing is "do not fall". But if you do fall, make sure to get it on video! Seriously though, the odds are 2:1 that you'll get seriously injured if you break the rule. Learn from this mistake, and have fun on the ice!
#project360 | Mount Everest
The #project360 is bringing legendary climbing routes as the Matterhorn Hörnligrat, the Mont Blanc and the north face of the Eiger to screens with breathtaking panoramic images. Now, the #project360 is going to the Roof of the world, Mount Everest. Now, at the beginning of the climbing season 2016, a milestone in another field – in digital cartography – was reached: For the first time, the Southern climbing route, beginning at the Nepalese basecamp up to the “Roof of the World”, is documented by breathtaking 360°-videography and -photography. A small group of four Sherpas attended to the honourable task to bring the Everest into the living rooms of the fans of alpine sports by these three-dimensional recordings. Likewise, it is an homage to the first climbers Edmund Hillary and Tensing Norgay who have already chosen this route in 1953. A customized backpack with altogether six cameras facilitates the perfect omnidirectional view.
#project360 I Patrouille des Glaciers
#project360 is going horizontal. #project360 is no longer just about marveling at traditional alpine tours and classic climbing routes;it now includes perhaps the most famous ski-touring race in the world: the Patrouille des Glaciers – which takes place from tomorrow till Saturday. Zermatt to Verbier is 53 kilometers as the crow flies. However, if you want to ski this route through the heart of the Alps rather than fly it, it is 110 km of challenging terrain. For many die-hard ski touring fans it is the season’s highlight as a multi-day tour. The valley town of the famous Matterhorn is the starting point for perhaps the most famous ski touring race in the world: the Patrouille des Glaciers. It was first introduced by the Mountain Brigade of the Swiss Armed Forces in 1943 as a way to test soldiers’ fitness. In the following years the competition was banned due to an accident, but started again in 1984. The PDG (as it is known in professional circles) is now open to both military and civilian participants. Thousands of athletes now start this race to complete the grueling distance as quickly as possible. Those who don’t regard ski-touring as a race, but who are still very ambitious skiers, are familiar with the section from Zermatt to Verbier as the first stages of the Haute Route, perhaps the most famous alpine crossing of them all.

Pushing The Limits On North America's Deadliest Ridge | North America's Fifty Classic Climbs, Ep. 5
by Epic TV
With one of their party having already turned back, the three-man team of Mark Smiley, Jed Porter and Reiner Thoni push on in their attempt to make the second ascent of the 'Hummingbird Traverse' on Canada's Mount Logan. After a grueling day of ice climbing on steady terrain, the team encounter the crux of the route; the shovel traverse. So-called because the first ascensionists literally dug their way through the cornices that cap the ridge, the traverse offers both danger and technical climbing. Despite making solid progress, the team soon realise that to continue any further would be to knowingly flirt with disaster. In the tradition of prudent alpinism, they bow to the elements, admit defeat, and return to more solid ground. A failed attempt perhaps, but there's a good reason why this route still awaits its second ascent. Only time will tell if our team will return to claim it.

The Calling A Life Rocked by Mountains by Barry Blanchard
Patagonia is proud to announce our latest publication: Barry Blanchard’s memoir, The Calling: http://www.patagonia.com/us/product/t... With heart-pounding descriptions of avalanches and treacherous ascents, Blanchard chronicles his transformation from a poor kid from the wrong side of the tracks to one of the most respected alpinists in the world. This is the story of the culture of climbing in the days of punk rock, spurred on by the rhythm of adrenaline and the arrogance of youth. It is also a portrait of the power of the mountains to lift us—physically, emotionally, intellectually, spiritually—and the depths of relationships based on total trust in the person at the other end of a rope. Includes climbs with renowned alpinists such as Kevin Doyle, Mark Twight, David Cheesmond and Ward Robinson.

Arc'teryx - Climbing - 2013
"We all try to be busy instead of being alive, busy instead of getting out and breathing, busy sending useless texts instead of walking in the woods with our kids or introducing them to life's joys. We move information instead of simply moving," says Arc'teryx athlete Will Gadd in this ode to action and movement. Acknowledging how hard it is to carve out time for exercise in our daily lives, Gadd's passionate words remind us how important it is to get outside, breathe hard, and create meaning through movement. After all, as Gadd says, "Life's more fun when you move." Music: "So Cold" by The Dodos

Massive Avalanche Sweeps Mt. Everest 2014 April 18
KATHMANDU: At least 12 Nepalese Sherpa guides were killed and seven others missing in an avalanche that struck Mount Everest on Friday morning, making it the single deadliest mountaineering accident on the world's highest peak.A group of about 50 climbers, mostly Sherpas were moving from Camp I to Camp II when a serac fell off the mountain burying them under the snow at an altitude of about 5,900 metres at about 6:30 am. The Sherpas were going up the mountain to fix ropes and set camps higher up the mountain for their fee-paying clients. "The search for the missing will continue Saturday morning," said Dipendra Poudel, a mountaineering official. Another six were injured, two of whom have been brought to Kathmandu for medical treatment. Some foreign climbers were in the group going up the mountain to get acclimatised but they were not among the fatalities. The single deadliest day before this Friday was May 11 1996 when 11 persons, eight on the Nepal side of the mountain and three on the China side in the north were killed in a snow storm at 8,000 metres, an incident made famous in the Jon Krakauer book Into Thin Air. According to Poudel, 334 foreign climbers have been given permission to climb the 8,848 metre world's highest peak in the spring season that lasts till end of May, which is the busiest climb season. About another 400 Sherpa guides accompany these mountaineers. Ethnic Sherpas act as guides for foreign mountaineers.
