1. Wild Country and Climbing Magazine have produced a series of 'How To' videos designed to demonstrate basic climbing skills and techniques. In this video Julie Ellison, Climbing Magazine Gear Editor, demonstrates quickdraw clipping techniques - an important and safety critical art.
    Clipping a quickdraw correctly, making sure it’s orientation is right and you are clipping in the correct plane is not as simple as it seems but for safety reasons is something that’s important to learn. It’s also essential to make sure you learn to clip quickly, without wasting energy: saving that for the moves ahead.
    Julie is using a selection of Wild Country and Red Chili gear whilst making these videos and you can check out some of our best gear here including: the Rock Lite helmet http://bit.ly/15zhrvv the Wild Wire quickdraw http://bit.ly/14IXnaZ and the Helium Quickdraw http://bit.ly/17duZuZ as well as the Ion screwgate http://bit.ly/13lHKl2.

  2. Talo Martín tells all: 'This magical route is in La Pedriza, my home crag 5 minutes from my house half an hour north of Madrid in central Spain. And with more than 3000 routes and more than 2000 boulder problems La Pedriza is one of the premier climbing areas in Europe - making me very fortunate to live very close by!!!
    As in a lot of granite slab climbing makes up about 60% of the climbing style and this is my speciality! However, often at Pedriza the north faces like this are full of crimps, but this particular one isn't and this line follows an unlogical line with compression mantles, 'rock hams' and slab moves.
    I bolted and climbed this this route with my brother Palan in 2007. We went back recently and filmed it with Manu Prats...tx Manu!!'

  3. "It was exactly what I was looking for - a route that would demand a new levels of dedication, physical strength, and mental fortitude from me. It was of course frustrating, ego-crushing, and difficult throughout, but in the end it was a dream come true. I named the route 'Le Reve', meaning 'The Dream' in French."

    A short film documenting Jonathan Siegrist on the first ascent of Idaho's hardest route, "Algorithm" 5.14d (9a), on September 8th 2012.

    "I could not fall. I think by the end I was screaming at every move - more nervous than tired - but definitely tired. I clipped the chains with swollen forearms and bleeding tips. 'Algorithm' 14d was born. Idaho's hardest pitch, and one of the proudest F.A.s of my career." - Jonathan Siegrist
