Dean Potter is nothing if not creative. In this short piece, he highlines across a desert landscape with a massive full moon as his backdrop.
In 2011, Anna Stohr and Juliane Wurm came to the U.S. to prepare for the Boulder World Cup. Part of their training included time with Lynn Hill. While the two young women are at the top of their sport, they realize they still have a lot to learn from Hill, who was the first person to free the Nose in Yosemite (which is considered to be one of the most impressive climbing feats in the twentieth century). Hill introduces Stohr and Wurm to crack climbing in Utah.
Chris Sharma started climbing at the age of 12 in a climbing gym. He was a fast study: At the age of 14, he won a national bouldering competition and, just one year later, he climbed a 5.14c route, the highest-rated rock climb in North America at the time. While he still continues to compete, his focus is to find routes around the world that no one else has climbed and work on them until he can “send” each route.
