    As a climber sometimes our biggest job is to try to do justice to the amazing stories of our friends and peers. For this piece I worked with our crew at http://camp4collective.com to tell http://thenorthface.com athlete Jimmy Chin's http://jimmychin.com story as he in turn highlights modern day climbing in Yosemite for a National Geographic feature story. It seemed so serendipitous to be 'on assignment' in a place that we all cut out teeth as adventurers and which also ended up becoming the namesake of our collective! As always, thanks for tuning in! ~reo Camp 4 Collective on vimeo: http://vimeo.com/camp4collective/videos Shot on the Canon 5d, L series lenses, http://www.kesslercrane.com/ pocket dolly v2 and http://www.rodemic.com/ video mic pro.

      Tommy Caldwell's dad introduced him to rock climbing at the age of three—and by 16, Tommy was a world champion. For the last five years, Tommy has been attempting to climb a shear 3000-foot rock face that many consider the most difficult free climb ever attempted. How do you stay motivated on such a climb? See how Tommy brings the encouragement of his friends, family and fans along for the ride.

        When is a rock climb too hard, the holds too small, the cracks too thin? Black Diamond athletes Tommy Caldwell and Kevin Jorgeson pushed those physical and mental boundaries to the limit this past fall when they spent nearly two months attempting to free a line on El Capitan’s southeast face, a 900-meter route (linking up sections of the Dawn Wall and Mescalito) that is likely the hardest big wall free climb in the world, mind-bogglingly stacked with numerous 5.14 pitches.

            For over 5 years Tommy Caldwell has been attempting a free climb of El Capitan's Dawn Wall with partner Kevin Jorgeson. This 30-pitch monster route, includes thirteen, 5.13 pitches and seven 5.14 pitches, three of which are 5.14+! When completed, the Dawn Wall will be the hardest big wall free climb in the world! In training for this year's attempt, Tommy formulated an audacious goal that would bring him to his home crag in Colorado, where it all began... The Monastery.

              Black Diamond athletes Tommy Caldwell and Sonnie Trotter redpointed their multi-pitch project on Canada’s Mount Louis this past August. The main headwall (referred to as the Diamond Face) is a stacked beast with the following pitches: 5.12+, 5.12+/13-, 5.13+, 5.12-, 5.12+, 5.11+, 5.10, all of which they bolted on lead. Here is the video that Sonnie edited together for us that documents the challenges and adventures that come with tackling such a high-end endeavor in the Canadian Rockies.

                This summer I had the pleasure of giving a presentation at the Squamish Mountain Film Festival and arrived a day early to do some shooting with the perhaps overly ambitious idea of presenting an original climbing film that I shot and cut in a day. It turned out to be a lot of work and I literally didn't sleep for a night to get this ready for the show, but everyone was super psyched to see a slice of their home area presented to them in near real time. This movie features Jason Kruk, Will Stanhope, Tommy Caldwell, and Hazel Findlay crushing Squamish's world class stone!!! Hope you enjoy it!!!

                  This is a short video for bluewaterropes.blogspot.com that gives you a peak into the climbing legend's training regimen, and philosophy on the climbing life. I attempted to keep up with Tommy for a typical training day and was sore for a week!!! Tommy is arguably the best bigwall freeclimber in the world, but what sets him apart is his down to earth happy go lucky nature and fun loving demeanor. Tommy is training for a free ascent of Mescalito on El Capitan which if he can pull it off, will be in my opinion, the hardest bigwall free climb in the world. With his hard core training regimen and complete dedication to the task at hand...if any one can do it...Tommy can.
