The Ridge is the brand new film from Danny Macaskill... For the first time in one of his films Danny climbs aboard a mountain bike and returns to his native home of the Isle of Skye in Scotland to take on a death-defying ride along the notorious Cuillin Ridgeline.
How could we describe the feeling of taking our first shower in over two months? Mmmm...Well yes ... We have just hit civilization in Greenland. These last 3 weeks has been very exciting in many ways! Adventurous climbing, a close polar bear encounter ( without anything to defend ourselves) and a very scary crossing back to Greenland which included a strong storm with snow and huge waves! On this kind of trip the adventure never seems to end until you are back under that hot shower. It does make the shower so much better!
A month long kayak adventure in the eastern Sayan Mountains of Siberia. 10 kayakers...2 river systems...liters of vodka...crazy discos...border crossings...drunken Russian poachers...the list goes on :)
As a climber I often find myself precariously placed on a variety of vertical landscapes - hanging on belays a few rope lengths above the ground on a scree-covered ledge is kind of the norm. So I couldn’t understand why my stomach was slowly dropping to the bottom of my stomach as I started the initial ascent into the Camino del Rey this past April. I had arrived in Malaga the night before and met up with fellow Five Ten athlete Nico Favresse and producer Ivo Ninov, Five Ten’s Grass Roots Marketing Manager in Europe and badass extreme athlete...
An amazing month in Siberia paddling the Onot and Kitoy rivers of the Eastern Sayan mountains. It had it all...flat water, big drops, big water, singing, dancing, vodka, discos, and great friends.
Heading back to the Swiss Valley was incredibly exciting for me. I was here last year with a slightly smaller wingsuit and less time for my trip. This year, I'm ready to rage. New suit in hand, one more year of experience under my belt, and 2 more weeks than I had last year. With a valley full of my friends ready to jump and party. Its like Disney World for BASE jumpers.
