      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

inspiring rock climbing videos?

Recommended Posts

For me, the top two are David Graham on the FA of Coup De Grace in Dosage IV and Sharma on the FA of Es Pontas in King Lines. They are not on the interweb.

 

Got more to add to my list?

 

The intersection of power, precision, focus, passion, and creativity. Awe-inspiring. Great cinematography and music help too.

Commited Vol 2: Pete Whittaker on the FA of 'Dynamics of Change', with the 13c feet above his head rockover with potential groundfall.

 

And Jorgeson's repeat of The Groove in 'Progression' is radical!

 

and on the BD website, with Caldwell and Jorgeson on the El CAp project, sticking the 8ft sideways dyno!

Hey Rad, I just saw a german film called "to the limit" with the hubar brothers speed climbing on the nose. Was done really well with more than the usual climbing crap. gets into the why's and mentality of the climbing. and good brotherly arguements too. really good 1.5 hours.

I always liked the Peter Croft segment in "Moving Over Stone" I think it was? Though I never was inspired enough (or had the guts)to want to solo much, it was an amazing example of what a few people are capable of.

... rick lovelace on [one of] his speed solos of zodiac in masters of stone II: hard rock - that one always gets me going for some reason :tup: watching video of mark wellman doing anything on rock is really inspirational - the guy's legs don't work and he's still out there!!!

 

and anything john bachar is in is well worth watching for inspirational and motivational reasons, though i wouldn't try much of what he is filmed doing... free solo's just not my bag, baby.

This has some really good rock climbing in it but it's about all kinds of climbing, really good footage of Robson and the House, Blanchard, Josephson attempt.

 

 

 

Any idea how I can watch this in Canada? It only supports US users...

Googled it and everything led me back to Hulu

This kid is fun to watch. Moves much better than Sharma did at this age.

Sort of a slide-movie but inspiring nonetheless. Some old Scotts pushing the boundaries.

This is short and a bit amateur, but truly one of the most inspiring and CLASSIC pieces of footage I've seen.

many times i've walked past that line and thought about it...but then being so close to the trail there would be a good chance of someone seeing me fall off it, and i couldn't muster the kiwis.
