The Mountains are Calling - Alpine Movie

hey guys,
finally finished editing my alpine climbing video.
let me know what you think about it :)
https://youtu.be/SeIRTAZRTL8


Description:
8 stunning days of alpine climbing in Italy & France.

First 4 days we passed a basic alpine course, in which we studied all the basic technics. During this time, we climbed 2 mountains. Castor (4228) was the first one, the edgy summit was amazing but sadly ...

Google + GIS National Forest Recreation Map

Below is a link for a Google + GIS map that I produced as a public service and part of my way to “pay it forward”. The map can display 20+ overlay layers that show trails, campgrounds, open roads, closed roads and other recreation-related features in the national forests.

The data for the trails and other overlays is hosted on federal GIS (Geographical Information System) servers and is the most authoritative data available.

You will ...

RIP Fred Beckey

We have lost the greatest today....to make it worse, it happened in a year with so many other deaths, however yours is different. You're the one I have looked up to more than anyone else. The one I have idolized, admired, and inspire to be. You lived the life no one has ever lived, and likely no one will ever get to experience again. You invented lifestyle climbing, and changed the culture of american climbing ...

Climbing above 7000 meters in the Karakoram Climbing above 7000 meters in the Karakoram

Does anyone know of any 7000 meter peaks in the Karakoram that would be possible to achievable without too much technical climbing?

My next step up in altitude is a 7000 meter peak, and at the same time i'm dreaming of seeing the Karakoram giants in person. Any ideas for a realistic peak in this region?

I've been looking at Spantik for a start, but it's about 150 km away from the mountains I'd like ...

‘The Climbers’ book - portraits of climbing legends

It only took 19 years but I finally finished it.

In mid-October, 2017 when my book is released it will be exactly that many years, almost to the day, since I took the first photograph (of Glen Dawson) for a portrait project that has since become much larger than I ever imagined.

It started in the 1990s, I simply wanted to photograph a few of the elder Sierra Nevada climbers, and I got them: Glen ...

underrated

Is mountaineering underrated? Your opponent is nature. It's possibly the most physically demanding of all. You don't get a ring for success. You don't have sponsors. It's not on TV. It's funded by the people who do it. It's probably the only sport that is done on every continent. It, in my opinion, is by far the most rewarding of all sports.
