A Super-Burly New Hampshire First Ascent | EpicTV | EpicTV

Always feel like I did something right when I get a shoutout on EpicTV Adventure. If you haven't had a chance take a look at their site. Gorgeous, easy to navigate and a killer attitude towards bringing our sport to the mainstream.

A lot more work goes into making a climbing video than most people realise and this video from Backmattress Media doesn't shy away from that fact. As well as the fantastic climbing footage they were able to capture of the first ascent of 'Lost Nation' (8A/V11), the video also features almost as much…

#4 is close enough. BACKMATTRESS!!! Our name came from these exact situations where onlookers would say, "What's those things on your back, some kinda backmattress?" Why yes good sir, yes it is...

I’ve bouldered for 20 years now, so I probably shouldn’t be surprised when yet another stranger stops to ask "What’s that thing on your back?"

Devastation sets in as the harsh New England winter claims yet another victim. A crucial hold both for setting up for the crux, and for a foot to find mid-crux, broke off this morning leaving a 2-3 finger "smush-stack" pocket. Possible heartbreak quickly turned as Dave kept his head on and quickly went to work trying to re-learn what is now a harder set of moves leading up to an already ridiculous crux. The minuscule differences cause Dave's body to be in a completely different position when hitting the sidepull compression move, not to mention now not having a foot to stick to hold him on the rock.

I was amazed at the determination and positivity that Dave emitted today in a situation that most would throw in the towel. Psyche is still super high and plans to come back are in the near future. Just another chapter in this epic journey, and I'm stoked to be a part of it.
