The rugged majesty and danger of the Great North is captured in this stunning video of mountain climbers and wildlife in this vast National Park, which covers over six million acres. Conrad’s specialty is climbing the most challenging terrain in the world, a quest that has taken him from the mountains of Alaska and Antarctica to the big walls of Patagonia to multiple ascents of Mount Everest. In this video, Conrad shares highlights from his many expeditions to Alaska to climb and ski Denali and the Alaska Range.

The new film by Sherpas Cinema.
This is a story of rising to the ultimate challenge. Having the courage to risk fatal exposure and the perseverance demanded on the quest for achievement. These are not solely physical feats, they are mental conquests.
From the creators of the award winning film "All.I.Can", Sherpas Cinema is proud to present their newest feature film, Into The Mind. With stunning cinematography and groundbreaking storytelling techniques, the Sherpas blur the lines between dream state and reality, and immerse you into the mind of a common skier as he attempts to climb and ski the ultimate mountain. Innovative athlete segments are actually a glimpse into his dreamscape, each one harboring messages that help inform our hero's current, real-life choices. As you experience the majesty of Alaska, Bolivia, the Himalaya and beyond, Into the Mind paints a philosophical portrait of human kind. How do we balance risk versus reward? Why are we inspired to rise to the challenges in our lives and what do we learn on this journey to attain them?

World-class climber, skier, and mountaineer Jimmy Chin scales Grand Teton and skis down, showing why he is one of the most skilled and fearless adventurers on the planet. Jimmy has circled the globe as an elite athlete, explorer, photographer and filmmaker, but his home is in Jackson Hole, Wyoming, near the stunningly beautiful Grand Teton National Park. (NationalParks.org/explore) The majestic Teton Range is ideal for rock climbers and ski mountaineers, and the park protects a diverse array of wildlife, including herds of buffalo and elk. Jimmy talks about visiting the National Parks as a child, and how he felt when he first saw the Tetons at age 18. He is one of the few people in the world to have climbed and skied Mount Everest from the summit.
Legendary rock climber Alex Honnold scales Yosemite’s Half Dome, El Capitan and Mount Watkins without a rope, defying gravity to ascend the world’s most inspiring walls.
