Forty-three-year-old Yuji Hirayama is one of the great legends of modern climbing. Near retirement, he
plans one big swan-song mission to complete a project, one of his hardest ever, at the spectacular summit
of Mount Kinabalu, on the island of Borneo. But first he must find the right partner. Enter Daniel Woods, the
young American boulderer who is one of the strongest humans in the climbing world, but lacks mountain
experience. Daniel-San travels to Japan to prove himself worthy of Hirayama's mentorship, and the unlikely
duo team up for the expedition of a lifetime.
The UK climbing scene is known for its strict traditional ethic, yielding dangerous routes and a competitive
machismo among the driven young climbers risking it all to prove their boldness. It's the last place you'd
expect to find a nice little blond girl putting all the lads to shame, but Hazel Findlay is doing just that. The
first woman to climb the British grade of E9 (super hard, super sketchy), Hazel is a connoseur of loose
rock, dodgy gear, and big runouts. Having mastered the scrappy seacliffs at home she teams up with Emily
Harrington to tackle the massive, untamed bigwalls of Taghia Gorge, Morocco.
High Tension: Ueli Steck and the Clash on Everest
Mount Everest made headlines around the world this year when it was
reported that Ueli Steck and Simone Moro, the strongest duo in
alpinism, were attacked by a crowd of angry sherpas at Camp 2 while
attempting a cutting edge new route on the highest -- and most
crowded -- mountain in the world.
Fearing for their lives, the climbers fled the mountain, and the incident
sparked a flurry of gasps and angry recrimination: sherpas, western
climbers, guiding companies, even the legendary mountain itself were
pounded with criticism from all sides. Amidst the bizarre event, REEL
ROCK was embedded with the climbing team and given an exclusive
look at what happened that day, and why.
The Stone Masters
Sender Films is currently working on a feature documentary about the
counterculture climbing scene in Yosemite over the last 50 years.
Provisionally titled "Valley Uprising," the film brings all the legends to
life: from Royal Robbins' epic battle with Warren Harding to the fabled
drug plane crash of 1977 and the escalating tensions between climbers
and national park rangers.This year's REEL ROCK Film Tour will include a teaser clip from the film
that focuses on the sex-drugs-n-rock era of Jim Bridwell and the
Stonemasters. In the photo below, Bridwell (with the bottle) and his
crew celebrate on the summit of El Capitan after their week-long first
ascent of the Pacific Ocean Wall.
