Ski Mountaineering | Watch Fall Line, The Classic Oscar-Nominated Short Film from Lowe Alpine

Ski mountaineering might be common place today, but in 1978 it was very much at the cutting edge.

So when equipment manufacturer Lowe Alpine made this short film documenting a day in the life of ski mountaineer Steve Shea, it created a sensation. The Oscar-nominated movie is still worth a watch today - especially for the section where Steve tumbles nearly the whole way down a mountain.

Lowe Alpine have re-released this classic movie to celebrate their 50th anniversary this year.

Top 5 Mountain Climbers of all Time

My Top Five Mountaineers of all Time. I include their achievements, impact on the future of mountaineering and ethics. This list is subjective and it is my own opinion not fact, I rate according to achievements, ingenuity/creativeness, style and impact on society. I hope this mountaineering video will motivate and inspire you to find your adventure in the mountains. Mountaineering is an interaction with nature and I do not wish to make out mountaineering to be a competitive activity with this list, I simply hope that you will be inspired by these brave mountaineers.
RIP Uueli Steck, RIP Jerzy Kukuczka, RIP Tenzing Norgay.

What is the DIFFERENCE between the mountaineering or ice climbing axe (2018) | Climbing Vlog Ep. 6

Choosing the right mountaineering axe or the best ice climbing axe can be really hard!

In this alpine climbing vlog episode I will touch the differences between the two major types of ice axes - the mountaineering axe and the technical ice climbing axe. And besides that, Petzl has released the Petzl Quark 2018 version, which now contains some pretty cool features making it a contender for the best allround ice axe - at least in my opinion

The Petzl Quark 2018 is now a standard item in my alpine climbing kit.

There are several key differences between a mountaineering axe and a technical ice climbing axe such as length of the shaft, the aggressiveness or curve of the shaft, the handle of the ice axe, and the teeth on the pick. Besides that the mountaineering axe comes in different sizes that should suit you - watch this alpine climbing vlog episode and find out how to choose the best size.

In the vlog you can see the:

- Grivel Tech Machine technical ice climbing axe
- Petzl Summit Evo mountaineering axe
- and the Petzl Quark 2018 allround mountaineering and technical ice climbing axe

Other brands have made ice axes like the Petzl Quark such as Grivel North Machine, Black Diamond Viper or the Edelrid Riot. However the Petzl Quark 2018 adds some nifty features such as adjustable finger rests and a foldable handrest.

Before you watch the alpine climbing vlog episode, here is a short disclamer; I am not associated with any or the brands mentioned, nor have I received any product from neither Petzl or Grivel. What I tell in the vlog is solely based on my own experiences and personal views! Yup, now go a head watching i vlog!

A Mountaineer Who Dares Greatly: Dave Hahn

Into the Arena - Dave Hahn is a mountaineer with a serious resume. One of his many accomplishment; more summits of Mount Everest than any non-Sherpa climber with 15. Teddy Roosevelt said, It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena.” - Rainier Films -

FIRST ASCENT: Dave Hahn - How To Become a Mountaineer

Dave Hahn's 12 summits (so far) of Everest are the most of any non-Sherpa in history. A guide with Rainier Mountaineering, Inc. since 1986, he has twice received prestigious awards for rescue work. In 2009. he was named Best Mountain Guide by Men's Journal. Dave knows what it takes to become a great mountaineer and what you need to take on mountains like Everest.

FIRST ASCENT: Ed Viesturs "The Art Of Mountaineering"

From a boy who grew up on the flatlands of Illinois, Ed has established himself as America's premier high-altitude mountaineer. He's the first American and the fifth person to summit all 14 of the world's 8000-meter peaks, all without the use of supplemental oxygen. He moved to Seattle in 1977 to study at the University of Washington and then at Washington State University, where he received his Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degree. He began guiding on Rainier with RMI in 1982 and has participated in 30 Himalayan expeditions since 1987. Here, Ed talks about the Art Of Mountaineering and why going up is optional, but coming down is mandatory.

REI Presents: Follow Through

People have opinions about skier Caroline Gleich: Inspirational. Gumby. Social media star. Role model. Model masquerading as a mountaineer. At sixteen, she stumbled upon a copy of the cult classic guidebook The Chuting Gallery. Irreverent and wonderfully arbitrary, the guidebook lays out a set of 90 ski mountaineering lines across Utah’s Wasatch Mountains. They were difficult and dangerous. When she first said out loud she wanted to ski them, she was met with laughter. “Maybe it was because I was five feet tall, or I was a little blonde girl, but I remember that clearly — and it didn’t feel good” says Gleich. After a decade building her skills, Gleich set out to complete her vision and become the skier she dreamt of being. “Follow Through” is a story of loss, belonging and desire for respect. In this age of hyperconnectivity, which voices do we choose to hear and which do we ignore?
