Petzl RocTrip China 2011

If you haven't seen it already, here is the official Petzl RocTrip China movie. This video is amazingly well edited and I think it's probably one of the best climbing movies I've ever watched (which is saying something 'cause I don't like climbing movies)! I would love to have the opportunity to travel to one of the Petzl RocTrips. Maybe one day! 

Setting/Competition time lapse

Here is a cool video that one of my friend's brothers made of the SCS Heartland Regional Championships at the Canyons Rock Climbing Gym in Frisco, Texas. I thought it was a nicely edited video with good music. I really like the idea of a time lapse while setting/stripping. Maybe you'll see some of that here soon from us at FNW!

Leavenworth 5/5/2012 photos

Sam, Shannon, Aran, and I headed out to Leavenworth last weekend. The weather was honestly the best I've seen in a long time which made for a pretty good trip. We unfortunately did not have the opportunity to get enough video footage to make another short video but Sam did manage to get a couple good shots of the weekend. Enjoy!

Here is a short video Sam put together of the weekend we had in Leavenworth a little bit ago. Some of the footage is blurry, I know, but I was being retarded and having issues with the manual focus ring for some reason. All in all it was a pretty good weekend! It was our first weekend back to Leavenworth in over a year and we pretty much spent the first day just messing around on previous climbs and getting footage for the video. It was only Sean's second time to Leavenworth and he killed it again! I'm psyched to see him progress and climb outside more.

I hope you enjoy the video. We know it's not the best but that was the first video we've ever put together. We are working on learning more about editing and they will get better in the future.
