  • Reclimbing The Classics: Watch Sean McColl Attempt Hubble (5.14c)

    Sean McColl has been crushing it lately on the competition circuit, having won Psicobloc 2014 just last week, but that doesn't mean hard redpoints come easy. Hubble in Raven Tor, England was the world's first 5.14c. First climbed in 1990 by Ben Moon, the stiff route has only seen four ascents in the 20+ years since. In this video, McColl attempts the line with Moon in tow for beta and history. He doesn't quite make the redpoint, but he does put in a solid effort.

  • Watch Shauna Coxsey Send New Base Line (V14)

    On July 12, 2014 the British boulderer Shauna Coxsey sent New Base Line (8B+/V14) in Magic Wood, Switzerland, making her the third female to climb the grade. Here's the footage of her ascent, of which Coxsey says: "I've been reluctant to share the video of my ascent of New Base Line due to the quality of the footage. I went to Magic Wood for a holiday. No film crew, no photographers, just myself and Ned. I wanted to film my ascent of the boulder to send to my coach so we balanced my phone in a tree as I was too scared to attempt the boulder without a spot. Due to the bad weather there was no opportunity to film the climb at a later date. This is my most significant ascent, and I have decided that I want to share my experience. I know this video doesn't show the whole climb but I hope you can appreciate my effort. I have watched this video countless times and I think it's pretty funny."

  • Reclimbing The Classics: Watch Mirko Caballero Climb Grand Illusion (5.13b)

    In 1979, hangdogging was frowned upon. Tony Yaniro was determined to send Grand Illusion (5.13b), but he couldn't do it solely with ground-up burns. The solution: a homemade wooden replica of the crack. Yaniro practiced the jams every day until he was able to send it in one go on three pieces of pre-placed gear. It was considered the most difficult route in the world at the time. In this video, Yaniro returns to the route to accompany 13-year-old phenom Mirko Caballero on his attempt of the notorious granite finger crack.
