    a year of post frostbite alpine adventure. striving to achieve the dream, and meld it into reality... Last april i got frostbite while descending from the summit of the mooses tooth in alaska. this past year in the mountains served as my recovery... alpine rock routes in the sierra, british columbia, and the northwest territories allowed me to stay off the cold snow and prepare for my extension of summer down south in el chalten. though the weather has been less then cooperative with me this year, the people and community make every moment a worthwhile and special experience. to live the dream sacrifices must be made and hardships overcome. it doesn't always work out as planned, but the adventure that ensues encourages us to appreciate every moment, and creates the lasting memories that keep us coming back to these magical wild places. footage: tad and whitney editing: tad music: lemolo & yeah yeah yeahs quote: thoreau granitestairway.com in the spirit of chad kellog, eitan green, matt hegaman and all other sources of inspiration that have moved on

      The modular design of the new line allows the climber to configure the tools according to his or her needs and the terrain. - The QUARK is the perfect multi-purpose tool for ice and technical alpine climbing. This new version is lighter and modular for all-terrain use. - The NOMIC is the tool for ice and mixed climbing and is now compatible with a hammer or adze. - With its radically curved shaft, the ERGO is designed especially for steep and difficult dry tooling, ice climbing and competitions.

          Nearly 3000 vertical feet of pure awesomeness. The Nose was the original line up El Cap. It is said to be the best rock climb in the world, and after completing it we would have to agree.

              Climb the mountains and get their good tidings. Nature's peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees. The winds will blow their own freshness into you, and the storms their energy, while cares will drop away from you like the leaves of Autumn. -John Muir “Potentialities increase Pleasure eats senses Power seems unlimited Suddenly I discover The only escape from madness Is the old path through Blood, sweat and tears.” – Voytek Kurtyka -a year of livin the alpine dream throughout the sierra, cascades, patagonia, and alaska climbers/pilots: whit, beau, dustin, jarad, mark, chris, tony, randy, tad music: florence & the machine **intro wind & chimes from radical face special thanks to steve dempsky at figure four packs, randy and crew at K2 air, seba at aylen aike, and all my partners for being so down to get after it with me!

Visit the campaign page here, with sweet highlight video http://goo.gl/tvDeJ -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- We started climbing at 4AM. To save time, we each attached ourselves to a fixed rope with a Petzl Tibloc (a simplified ascending device) to self-belay ourselves. Without a proper belay, we had to be in the mindset that we were basically free soloing the first five pitches. If one of us did fall the Tibloc would bit on the rope, and arrest the fall (hopefully). It was too scary to trust it, so we climbed like we were not going to fall.

                  This 2000 foot climb is truly amazing. From the thousands of miles you have to drive north to the Yukon, to the flight across the NW Territories boarder, landing on a lake, the approach, the campground, the climb itself, its all part of a great experience. www.smileysproject.com Filmed: Mark Smiley Janelle Smiley Edited: Mark Smiley If you are interested in high res photos taken from a helicopter of the entire Cirque of the Unclimbables, please shoot me an email.

                    Climbing in the Alaskan Range is the real deal. The West Ridge of Mt Hunter is the hardest climb I have ever completed. Steep snow rock and ice faces, big exposure, and Alaska style weather all add to its difficulties.
