1. Alex Puccio: The Centaur


    from Prana Living / Added

    I love to share my passion for climbing with everyone I come in touch with. Climbing is everything to me and it has brought me great things in life. It has given me the opportunity to meet so many awesome people and has led me to cool places around the world. There is nothing better than traveling around and getting to climb at different places. There are so many different types of rock and various types of movements and I want to experience them all! ~Alex Puccio

      • Chris Sharma: The Legacy Continues


        from Prana Living / Added

        Chris Sharma's meteoric climbing career started when he won the Bouldering Nationals at age 14 and opened the hardest climb in America (at the time, 5.14c) a year later. In the decade that followed, Chris has continued to take climbing to a new level. Not only has he consistently shattered previous conceptions of difficulty, he was recently voted 8a Climber of the Decade. He has sent multiple 5.15 routes, bouldered V15, onsighted 5.14b, and established deep water solo routes at the highest grades. Chris holds claim to the current hardest route in America, and perhaps the world, with his ascent of Jumbo Love at Clark Mountain in California. Chris has a lot on his plate this year with a new house in Spain, establishing a string of 5.15 routes and climbing almost daily with his girlfriend Daila Ojeda. The area around their home is considered one of the hotspots for the sport globally with more than 70 crags featuring steep limestone caves and seemingly endless possibilities. It looks like Chris will have plenty of time to perfect his Spanish accent... For More On Chris Visit: http://bit.ly/ChrisSharma

              In April, we filmed the opening ceremony at the Auburn Quarry for an outdoor non-profit organization called CRAGS (Climbing Resource Advocates for Greater Sacramento). The local organization was founded in 2008 by a group of determined climbers who share a passion for rock climbing outdoors and protecting the places that have available climbing. They're affiliated with both local and national organizations such as Rocknasium Climbing Gym, Pipeworks, Constant Clothing, Access Fund, and The American Alpine Club, which are all equal advocates for preserving these places for climbers. We were very honored to film a highlight video for the organization. Everyone was very appreciative of the effort put in by all parties, and it was impressive to see everyone come together to make this climbing spot available to the public. After years of determination and working with the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation, the quarry's Cave Valley climbing area is now open. (The approach isn't far at all!) There seems to be routes for all climbing levels too. Families from young to old were going up the limestone walls with a smile. We even met Alex Honnold's mom! This year also marks 150 years of celebrating national parks, and it is good to see the work for access to outdoor areas paying off in the enjoyment of so many people.

              • Dean Potter: Falling To Fly


                from Prana Living / Added

                Dean Potter is characterized by creativity, commitment and challenge. He started climbing as a child, with a free solo fall from a stone wall as one of his earliest memories. Since that time, he has speed soloed Half Dome and El Capitan, Cerro Torre, and Fitzroy. He was the first to make a one-day free ascent of El Cap and Half Dome, and a one-day speed linkup of both of those big walls and Mount Watkins, Yosemites third Grade VI wall. He has also established testpiece crack routes in the Utah desert and highball boulder problems in Yosemite. For more on Dean visit prAna.com Dean has walked the longest highlines, often without a safety leash, though he has dedicated over a decade of engineering and testing to create the safest highline systems currently used. Most recently, he has combined BASE jumping skill with highlining and free soloing, using a specially engineered ultralight BASE rig as his backup system. Dean currently bases out of Yosemite, where he can usually be found on a large piece of granite. For videos, photos and more information on Dean, visit http://bit.ly/DeanPotterTags.

                • Dean Potter: 'King Air' First Ascent


                  from Prana Living / Added

                  The Le Conte boulder, also known as the House Keeping boulder, is in Yosemite Valley, California. For more than a decade, I'd been trying to figure out the proudest, tallest line on the block, with no luck. One day, I was playing with my sister Jenny's kids, Cyrus and Dahlia, in the forest amongst the rocks. They were acting all whacky, wild and uninhibited, jumping and bouncing around from rock to rock and scampering up trees. I had been trying this sick line on the boulder but never figured out the crux move in all the years before. Somehow the kids, 'anything is possible' energy drifted into me. I stood before the starting bucket giggling. I was loose and moved my body in a different way than ever before. To my amazement, I stuck the crux with my nine-year-old nephew and my 7-year-old niece spotting me. I jumped down, careful not to squish them and finally believed I would send this lifetime project within my next few efforts. King Air is one of the most obvious boulder problems around. For years I tried the problem alone, somehow keeping it completely secret. My bro, Ivo Ninov and I worked on it together. We kept our efforts stealth by washing off the chalk with water before leaving for the night. For years, I doubt anyone else ever seriously looked at the bold line as it was too high and there wasn't any chalk to lead them. Ivos enthusiasm literally lifted me higher and higher. On every serious attempt he spotted me, making sure that at least I wouldn’t split my melon. This is the proudest highball boulder problem I know of in the Valley. The business scales over 30 feet to the final bucket. Its on the verge of being a free solo. When I fell my feet traveled 20 feet before impacting the pads. I was lucky not to shatter bones. My quads were very sore and I limped around for the next few days. King Air is the most beautiful boulder problem Ive ever done. You would be hard pressed to find any line, more aesthetic. ~Dean Potter For More On Dean Visit http://www.prana.com/ambassadors/dean-potter

                    14 months ago Ethan Davis moved to the Wood River Valley in Hailey, ID. After a few days of climbing at the near by Dierkes Lake, Ethan made it a goal to climb every route in the area. Recently he has taken a new position in Boulder, CO. This is his last weekend to climb at Dierkes before moving east. Correction: There are only 119 rope routes in Dierkes Lake City Park. There are close to 300 routes total with bouldering included.
