  • Video: New Speed Climbing World Record

    Czech climber Libor Hroza set a new world record in speed climbing on August 30, ascending the 15-meter (49-foot) speed course in 5.73 seconds, during a competition in Arco, Italy. Hroza, 27, is ranked second in the world in speed climbing. The IFSC has formalized the rules for international speed competitions, and records are only counted if they take place on a certified wall (currently only seven in the world, including one in Canada), using the exact same holds and route on every course. The women's 15-meter speed record (7.85 seconds) is held by Iuliia Kaplina from Russia.

  • Video: Jonathan Siegrist Climbs Speed (5.14c)

    Fresh off his ascent of Realization aka Biographie (5.15a), Jonathan Siegrist headed over to Voralpsee, Switzerland for a shot at Speed (5.14c). Speed was first climbed by Beat Kammerlander in 1995, and is known for being an extremely difficult and techy face climb. The route hasn't seen a significant number of ascents since it was put up nearly 20 years ago. Siegrist would go on to make the third ascent of an extension of the route called Speed Integrale (5.14d). Read Siegrist's account on his blog.

  • Video: Couple Climbs To Their Cliff-Top Wedding In Squamish

    Well, this is adorable. This couple threw out the usual wedding-day worries (food, flowers, DJ) and replaced them with hand jams and foot smears by holding their ceremony on top of The Chief in Squamish, BC. The approach to their sacred union included ascents of Calculus Crack (5.8) and The Squamish Buttress (5.10c), in formal attire. Luckily, no one bailed on either route. We suspect that the hardest part was finding a harness-compatible wedding dress.

  • Watch Cedar Wright Wrestle With Offwidth Squat (5.12a)

    Offwidth climbing is scrappy and brutal. This route is no exception. Watch as Cedar Wright takes on Squat (5.12a) in Vedauwoo, Wyoming. Squat is a short, but grueling route that was put up by Bob Scarpelli and went unrepeated for 10 years. The burly Scarpelli originally graded it 5.11b, but it's since been bumped up three notches to solid 5.12a. Cedar would later comment on Mountain Project, "I was born again up there. 35 feet but feels like 700. Praise the Offwidth."

  • Alex Honnold: The Relativity of Risk

    This week, Alex Honnold stopped by the Boulder Theater in Boulder, Colorado for a live Q&A. The night included a rad video presentation, and plenty of great Honnold quips. For example, if you're still waiting to see him climb the Taipei 101, then we hate to disappoint you, but Honnold said, "It's not that shocking, but it turns out that lawyers and free soloing don't mix... Whoda thunk?" Watch the full event here if you didn't get to see it live.
