Kilian Jornet Cruises Up The Heavily Exposed East Ridge Of Kyrkjetaket

Jornet has set speed records summiting the likes of Mt. Kilimanjaro, Denali, and as of this May, ascended the 29,029-foot peak of Mount Everest in just over 26 hours. 

Hold on and watch the 29-year-old Spaniard climb the daunting East Ridge, at Kyrkjetaket, in Romsdalen, Norway. Even with a GoPro POV mount in hand, Jornet swiftly cruises up the ridge, with hundreds of feet in exposure on either side.

Singing Park Ranger Will School You On River Safety

Summer is officially here – river rats rejoice! The water can be enjoyed by all, whether your choice of vessel is an inflatable inner tube or an actual kayak. Rivers, however, are ever-changing. They can vary from a dry trickle to a knock-your-Chacos-off kind of current. And as this park ranger reminds us in the best possible way, don’t be stupid.
