During the Petzl RocTrip China 2011, a handful of climbers from both the East and the West cleaned and bolted more than 250 routes (both multi and single pitch), but no one put up a route quite like la Voie du Milieu... Daniel Dulac and Mathieu Bouyoud sent the multi-pitch route "La Voie du Milieu" during the Petzl RocTrip in China.
In this three part series we follow Arc'teryx athlete Jonathan Siegrist around North America as he hits different areas from Western Canada to Kentucky. Along the way JStar sends new routes and repeats area classics, and ultimately faces his greatest challenge to date.
In Episode 1, Jonathan Siegrist visits Equinox crag in Washington State and then heads to Horne Lake on Vancouver Island.
Today, many climbers ascend Yosemite’s famous Half Dome in just a few hours. But how would they fare all alone with no partner, no rope and just a thousand feet of air between them and the ground? Meet Alex Honnold. He’s 23, tall, unassuming and kind of goofy. He’s also a calm, collected super-athlete who is pioneering new territory by free soloing big walls. Alone on the Wall, one of Sender Films’ First Ascent series, follows Alex as he completes two ground-breaking projects: free soloing Zion’s Moonlight Buttress and Yosemite’s Half Dome. In the world of climbing, free soloing is rare, and in the world of free soloing, nobody else attempts such big walls. His climbing is exceptional, but it’s his composure, focus and utter calm that make such an impression.
