    Life in a legend's shadow

    Chris Alstrin (2015)

    Opportunities may be handed to you a little easier when you’re the son of a legend but that doesn’t guarantee success. Being dragged to Pakistan at the age of 1 for a climbing expedition only to come home with Chicken Pox and being told 'You’re never going to be as good as your father' would make any young child stay as far away from climbing as possible. Jess Roskelley the son of Legendary climber John Roskelley and the only American to receive a Piolet d’Or Lifetime Achievement Award for his climbing achievements thought the same way throughout his childhood until that one climb changed his entire life.

    The trilogy Vod

    The trilogy

    Tommy Joyce (2018)

    On July 12, 2018, Professional Climber, Sasha DiGiulian, set out to become the first woman and second person in history to complete 'Rocky Mountain Trilogy'; a compilation of three of the hardest 5.14 big walls in the Canadian Rockies. The imposing climbs, on Castle Mountain, Mount Louis, and Mount Yamnuska, respectively will take Sasha 2 months of continued effort with the ultimate goal of ascending each sheer wall in a single day push, with zero falls — a combined average of over 9,000 vertical feet of climbing at a lung busting average elevation of 7,000ft.

    Drei Siebe - Beat Kammerlander

    Dietmar Walser (2014)

    At the age of 55, Beat Kammerlander opens 'Drei Siebe', a new 8b route at Bürser Platte. On an apparently smooth wall, Kammerlander shows his sport climbing perfection and gives insights into his motivation and his thinking. The route in question lies to the left of Kammerlander's famous Prinzip Hoffnung and despite being a sport climb has some sections that are fairly run out. The bouldery crux start is followed by a second-half that is both powerful and technical and although Kammerlander has suggested a 'mere' 8b, he also states that Drei Siebe 'is one of the routes where the grade is meaningless'.

    Adaptive

    Taylor Zann (2019)

    Jim Ewing is a veteran rock climber and senior rope engineer at Sterling Rope, a prominent rock-climbing rope company. On Christmas Day in 2014, Jim fell over 50 feet to the ground in a climbing accident, a near-death experience that led to the subsequent below-the-knee amputation of his left leg. Before walking on a prosthetic, Jim was already climbing again, and before long, he began dreaming about his bucket list… In 2018, Jim joins Maureen Beck, a professional climber missing her left hand, to attempt the first all-adaptive ascent of the Lotus Flower Tower in Canada’s Cirque of the Unclimbables. Jim and Maureen hope to demonstrate that 'disabled' climbers are just differently –and equally–abled.
