1. Kyle Dempster climbing in Basaseachic National Park fueled with Rimini Coffee


    from Josh Scheuerman Added 274 1 0

    Kyle Dempster has been climbing all over the world, particularly in some of the most "dangerous" places in the world, which happens to be fairly peaceful when he comes through. From solo a descent in Kyrgyzstan to first descents in Pakistan, Kyle has been tackling new obstacles and various climbing seasons to be the best well rounded climber he can be. Recently he traveled to the Sierra Madre, Basaseachic National Park and found some "big o' rocks to climb, yummy tacos, and friendly rancher folks." Here is a short video of a crux in the climb he navigates within three-minutes, which would take me an hour and a lot more beers to calm my nerves. Also a co-owner of a coffee shop, Higher Grounds, in Salt Lake City, Kyle also has a routine of starting out with a hot cup of joe to fuel his habits. "The Mexican organic was a great way to start the day and all four of us loved to start the day with some Rimini love."

        www.outdoorresearch.com www.ducttapethenbeer.com In summer 2011, Outdoor Research athlete Kyle Dempster took off on his bike across Kyrgyzstan with a couple mostly-accurate maps, a trailer full of climbing gear, and a vocabulary of 10 Kyrgyz words. He spent two months pedaling and pushing the bike more than 1200 km on roads of variable states of neglect, wading through wild rivers, dealing with corrupt military checkpoint staff, and soloing a handful of unclimbed alpine rock and mixed routes. He recorded the journey, his camera his only partner, friend, and sometimes the only receiving end of his conversations for days at a time. In 2013, Kyle’s self-shot footage of his journey in Kyrgyzstan made it to the desk of filmmakers Fitz Cahall and Austin Siadak, who were asked to look at the footage and see if there might be enough to chop together a 4-minute climbing film. They saw a lot more potential in it, and turned it into the 25-minute “The Road From Karakol,” which debuted at the 5Point Film Festival and took home the Best In Fest award.

          • Baintha Brakk - The Ogre - Piolets d'Or 2013


            from Planetmountain.com Added 7,953 17 0

            One of the 6 winners of the Piolets d'Or 2013. The Ogre is one of the most celebrated of the world's mountains yet until last year had been summited only twice, and never from the south, despite many attempts. The Americans Kyle Dempster, Hayden Kennedy, and Josh Wharton chose a cunning line up the southeast ridge to southeast face to south face. Gaining the upper south face involved a steep traverse across complete rubble and, higher, they overcame hard sections of mixed ground. From a bivouac at 6,900m, Dempster and Kennedy reached the summit but then had to make a difficult descent with an unwell Wharton.

              01:00 Glen Plake, Rémy Lécluse and Greg Costa are making progress on their mission to be the first to ski the world's eighth highest mountain without oxygen. The crew are steadily working their way up the mountain and had established Camp 1 and Camp 2 before an approaching storm pushed them back to base camp. With more bad weather approaching and their climbing window becoming more and more narrow, the team must make a decision about when and how to proceed. 02:35 The four-event ProBASE World Cup heads to the BASE jumping Mecca of Lauterbrunnen, Switzerland for its dramatic final stage: a head-to-head wingsuit race! EpicTV was on-hand to catch the first day of this mind-blowing event where wingsuit pilots race each other at speeds of up to 180 km/h. 06:20 There's a good reason that Baintha Brakk in Pakistan's Karakorum range is better known by its frightening knickname, The Ogre. The first ascent in 1977 became one of mountaineering's most infamous epics when Doug Scott broke both his legs on the first rappel from the summit while his partner Chris Bonington broke two ribs and contracted pneumonia. The team took a week to descend through a massive storm before finally reaching base camp. Trey and Hugo discuss Hayden Kennedy and Kyle Dempster's recent ascent via a new route which marked only the third-ever ascent of the mountain. 07:41The Hurley Pro kicks off this week at Southern California's Lower Trestles, arguably one of the world's most high-performance waves. With any of the top 13 competitors still in the running for the overall title, the sixth event of the ten-event ASP World Tour is a crucial stop for many of the world's best surfers with the winner of this event ultimately winning the world title the past four years. EpicTV Surf Editor, past ASP President and former SoCal homeboy Dave Mailman gives us the down low on the event, the competitors and the famous wave. 19:20 This week is the premiere of the Reel Rock Film Festival and one of the films we're most excited to see is Wide Boyz by Hot Aches Productions. In the film, Tom Randall and Pete Whittaker train for two years to make the first free ascent of Century Crack, the world's hardest off-width climb. We caught the boys on skype to talk about the climb and found that Tom and Pete's fun-loving, laid back attitudes hide the discipline and determination needed to achieve this phenomenally physical climb.
