ICE REVOLUTION – Two experienced climbers attempt a near-impossible feat: scaling the radical overhang of the hardest pure ice climb route in the world, the Helmcken Falls of British Columbia. While dodging 30-foot icicles, the pair tries to set a new standard in the already risky sport of ice climbing. 13 min
PROJECT DAWN WALL – Tommy Caldwell is the master of big wall free climbing. He’s devoted the last decade of his life to opening free routes on Yosemite’s El Capitan, rewriting climbing history in the process. Now he’s three seasons deep into his ultimate project – the seemingly impossible Dawn Wall. Joined by bouldering specialist Kevin Jorgeson, Tommy makes his first big ground-up push, pulling pitch after pitch of 5.14 first ascents before an epic storm shuts the team down until next year… 12 min
RACE FOR THE NOSE – In a wild ascent, Dean Potter and Sean Leary set the speed record for climbing up the Nose of Yosemite Valley’s El Capitan in November 2010. They ran up the 31-pitch route in 2 hours, 36 minutes, 45 seconds—20 seconds faster than the previous record held by Yuji Hirayama and Hans Florine. 21 min
