For us posting this video, is a case of “I don’t always (fill in the blank) but when I do…” We pride ourselves on original content, we are the Outkast of the climbing world (if you don’t know about the musical act Outkast, check em out. Basically they ensured their legacy in the hip-hop game by creating their own soulful beats, and dropping poetry, knowledge, and real stories all up on the track.)
That said, we wanted to share this video that Patagonia shared with us earlier this morning, A Line Across The Sky, documenting Tommy Caldwell and Alex Honnold’s achievement last year on the Fitz Roy, in Patagonia.
So, while I don’t always post climbing videos, but when I do they involve Tommy Caldwell and Alex Honnold doing some inspiring shit.
(Note: the full film will be a part of the REEL Rock Tour this year.)
