Mountain Hardwear athlete Ueli Steck has summited some of the highest peaks in the world. Climbing at any level requires adhering to strict processes in order to remain efficient and safe in the mountains. Oftentimes, these processes are what climbers come to love about climbing. It’s not always about getting to the top.

All Time-lapse sequences were taken by the astronauts onboard the International Space Station (ISS) (Thanks guys for making this available to the public for use!) All footage has been color graded, denoised, deflickered, slowed down and stabilized by myself. Clips were then complied and converted to 1080 HD at 24 frames/sec.
Some interesting tidbits about the ISS. It orbits the planet about once every 90 mins and is about 350 Km/217 miles. The yellow/greenish line that you see over the earth is Airglow.
Hope you all enjoy it and thanks for watching!
P.S. It would be a dream to actually be up there in the ISS. Btw NASA, if you need a Biochemistry Ph.D to do some work for you up there, I’m your man, LOL!

#AToC2014 bunch finish handshake
The Paterberg with Team Sky
…Livesey shook British climbing to it’s hairy socks and showed what application and dedication could produce while talent sat in the pub musing about what it was going to do.
A team of French climbers were hit by a rock on the Desmaison Gousseault and were evacuated by helicopter. This really shows how serious the work can be and the talent involved: from flying the heli to getting the climbers off the mountain. Huge respect to all those who work at the PGHM.
Buy them beer if they ever take you off the mountain!

Most people tremble at the idea of riding a bike in the winter. Others, relish in it. For several dedicated Toronto cyclists and bike messengers, winter is a time to show their dedication.
For nearly twenty years, Toronto has been the scene of North America’s only bicycle ice race in a closed velodrome style circuit - otherwise known as an ice hockey rink. The race also exists to fund raise for the local community - and the 2012 year raised funds for at-risk youth program called Charlie’s Freewheels (charliesfreewheels.ca/)
Le Roi de Glace follows a few ambitious cyclists who are set on winning this prestigious yearly event.

This is a short film about the processes by which mountains are created and eventually destroyed. It is based upon the work of British geographer L. Dudley Stamp, and was shot in Iceland.
Physical geography and geology is an enormous and fascinating subject, and this film only touches upon the surface of the discipline. For those who wish to further advance their knowledge in this field, further reading and research is recommended.
