    The Grand Canyon is an immense place, almost unfathomable in scale, and one of the last places in the American West to be explored. John Wesley Powell called it the "Great Unknown," having no idea what rapids, falls, or canyons awaited him on his first descent of the river in 1869. In the decades since, the Canyon has been a playground for dozens of explorers. River runners, backpackers, routefinders, lithic hunters, and peakbaggers have all laid claim to the Canyon's iconic landmarks, often seeking out the prestigious "firsts." While many significant points of interest were being explored, there was one feature that was left almost entirely ignored: the Canyon's innumerable technical slots. Deep within this vast wilderness are secret and intimate tributaries rarely visited by man, hiding some of the Canyon's most remarkable features. The barrier to entry is steep. To explore them, one must have a knowledge of backpacking, packrafting, rappeling, anchor building, and off-trail navigation. The Last of the Great Unknown is the story of these slots, the canyoneers who systematically explored their drainages, and the secrets hidden deep within their walls. In February 2011, a group of 16 set out to run the Grand Canyon and descend as many slots as possible en route. The itinerary was ambitious. 280 miles of whitewater, 30 days and 22 slots. The tally included 7 fully loaded boats, 5 rookie boatmen, 1400 packed meals, a steady flow around 20k cfs, and an ungodly amount of 4 a.m. wakeup calls. This video is a compilation of that trip, and a preview of what's to come... music by alex beroza, licensed by creative commons from ccmixter.org. R' Coaster, LTH, and Tell Somebody

      Zion National Park was the first National Park to be dedicated in the state of Utah, and features landscape that is not only unique, but extraordinarily diverse. Blake Nyman, Jeff Larson, and I took a last minute trip down to Southern Utah in order to spend some time together before Jeff left for a business trip, and this compilation is a quick montage of a standard weekend trip to one of the coolest places on the planet. We did the Behunin and Mystery technical slot canyon routes. Stay tuned for a re-imagining of the trip that showcases what Zion has to offer, and in the meantime, enjoy the beauty and excitement of Utah's first National Park. Shot on a Canon 5D MK II and GoPro HD Hero.

It's awesome! http://vimeo.com/23379611

        Some DJI Phantom 2 shots from a corporate video shoot in Florac, France. Filmed select members of the French army trying out new clothing and footwear technologies. There is NO stabilisation done on any of the clips in the video. It was fairly windy on the day but the H3-3D gimbal did its job.

                  My friend Josh Smith and I climbed and skied The Grand Teton on May 2, 2014. We were hoping to ski the Otter Body route, but conditions did not allow. We skied the Ford-Stettner route instead. The snow was very difficult (punchy crust and roller balls on top, softer and thick underneath) but we made the most of it and got to ski a true American icon. It was a great day and we're both thankful to have had the opportunity to do it all safe and sound.
