COLD - Experience Gasherbrum II in the middle of a deep, dark winter, as seen from the raw, honest perspective of alpinist and photographer Cory Richards. The film deftly captures the interweaving of pain, doubt, and fear and reveals a harrowing descent that amplifies the isolation and exposure. 19 min
PROJECT DAWN WALL - Tommy Caldwell is the master of big wall free climbing. He's devoted the last decade of his life to opening free routes on Yosemite's El Capitan, rewriting climbing history in the process. Now he's three seasons deep into his ultimate project - the seemingly impossible Dawn Wall. Joined by bouldering specialist Kevin Jorgeson, Tommy makes his first big ground-up push, pulling pitch after pitch of 5.14 first ascents before an epic storm shuts the team down until next year 12 min
RACE FOR THE NOSE - In a wild ascent, Dean Potter and Sean Leary set the speed record for climbing up the Nose of Yosemite Valley's El Capitan in November 2010. They ran up the 31-pitch route in 2 hours, 36 minutes, 45 seconds20 seconds faster than the previous record held by Yuji Hirayama and Hans Florine. (This year Florine stole back the record.) 21 min
