This Insane Speed Riding Video Is Making Our Friday—And It’ll Change The Way You Look At Mountains

These pio­neers are defy­ing every­thing we thought pos­si­ble in the mountains.

Canopy-wielding moun­tain pio­neers are out there chang­ing the way we look at the alpine by descend­ing mon­sters that were pre­vi­ously thought unrideable—and you’ve never seen any­thing like it. The tran­scen­den­tal sport is called speed rid­ing, and Red Bull Media House and Freeride Enter­tain­ment teamed up to do it jus­tice in a feature-length doc­u­men­tary fea­tur­ing big bud­get Hollywood-style pro­duc­tion, stun­ning POV footage, and a chest-thumping sound­track.  Watch the trailer for The Unride­ables: Alaska Range, the first feature-length doc­u­men­tary of speed rid­ing, above. The full fea­ture dropped

Making the Most of America’s Most Desolate Places

The best things to do in the mid­dle of nowhere.

Some­times you just want to get away from it all. A demand­ing job, a phone ring­ing off the hook, and in some cases, even other peo­ple. That desire is under­stand­able, and some­times ful­fill­ing it can be one of the most inspir­ing things you ever do. From Henry Thoreau to John Muir, some of the great­est thoughts were born out of iso­la­tion. Bar­row, AlaskaAlaska is the least densely pop­u­lated state in Amer­ica, but if even that is too crowded for you, Barrow

180 South Tents – A Clymb Exclusive

Two Clymb employ­ees put 180 South tents to the test at the Deschutes River.

I pitched the Juniper 2 in a juniper grove entirely by acci­dent. Myself, and a buyer at The Clymb, Brett Cas­sidy, were camp­ing at the Deschutes River and we had the good for­tune to give these new 180 South tents that are exclu­sive to The Clymb a trial run. The world-famous salmonfly hatch was on, and a cur­sory glance at the river­bank grass revealed these thumb-sized bugs in abun­dance. I was anx­ious to wet my line, so I jumped out of

The Inexistence of Impossible: Interview With Winter Alpinist Simone Moro

Thoughts from one of the world’s elite winter climbers.

“Impos­si­ble” does not exist for Simone Moro, because he’s con­stantly redefin­ing the word. The Ital­ian alpin­ist, widely con­sid­ered one of the world’s most elite, has earned his rep­u­ta­tion by climb­ing daunt­ing 8,000-meter peaks. Inspired by the Pol­ish hard men of the 1980s, Moro con­quers the high­est moun­tains on Earth with his spe­cialty – he climbs in win­ter. In the Himalayas, the Karako­ram, and the Andes, his feats and dar­ing expe­di­tions are unmatched: First win­ter ascents on Aconcagua, Makalu, Shisha Pangma, and

4 Actions Men Can Take to Help Female Runners Feel Safer

Avoid becom­ing an accidental creeper.

Imag­ine run­ning alone at 6 am on a week­end; it’s still chilly, more dark than light, and the roads aren’t busy yet. You’re mid­way through your run, when you hear a car com­ing up behind you. It slows down. Your heart speeds up. You hear the wheels turn­ing, as if to pull over, and your mus­cles tense as you pick up your pace. You muster the courage to turn your head and see what the car is doing. As it
