    Chu Bien

    Kaare Iverson (2019)

    Set amidst the emerald waters and soaring limestone islets of coastal Vietnam, Captain 'Chu' Bien spends more time in a modest boat at sea than at home. Embodying simplicity—the items he uses daily can be counted on one hand—he confirms that happiness and fulfillment are found in the relationships we forge, not the things we accumulate. A short by Dan Holz and Kaare Iverson.

    Into the light

    Jochen Schmoll (2014)

    Majlis al Jinn, a huge subterranean chamber in Oman, is big enough to house the Great Pyramid of Giza. Climbers Chris Sharma and Stefan Glowacz attempt an ascent up the massive arch and back to the light of the surface. After rappelling down a 170-metre drop, Chris Sharma and his partner set out for their record-breaking ascent from the deepest point of the cave. Fighting gravity they follow the enormous arch suspended upside down much of the time. It is a ground-breaking climb back into the light. The route has never been attempted before and counts as the world’s longest roof climb with 13 pitches.

    Slaydies

    Tara Kerzhner (2018)

    Slaydies /slādēz/ noun – Ladies who slay, otherwise known as female climbers who crush while bringing as much joy to climbing as they do progress for women in the sport. In the fall of 2017, three pro climbers and two videographers traveled to Mallorca to sport climb, deep-water solo, and experience the overwhelming psych of having an all-female crew. Although Emily Harrington, Paige Claassen, and Margo Hayes, all grew up in the climbing scene near Boulder, Colorado, they had never done a climbing trip together just for fun.
