Paddling 400 Km To Learn Happiness Fits In A Kayak

The River’s Call is many things. At its most simple, it is a story of six kayakers on a 400 km journey down the Apurimac River in Peru.

Something the soothing voice of the film calls “the modern man paradox. Or the art of putting yourself in a crappy situation.” The river the band of kayakers float is a pristine one. It flows from high in the Andes mountains, and each bend of the river reveals a new challenge, and a new story. Box canyons are explored, whitewater is ran, and calm jungle flows are floated. Watch, and discover that “happiness fits in a kayak. And a kayak is tiny.”

Is This the Hardest Single-Pitch Trad Climb on Earth?

Climbing hard routes is a labor of love. Sometimes it takes days, weeks, even years to complete a project at the outer extremities of someone’s climbing ability. For anyone who’s ever embarked on such a journey, completion and closure offers the ultimate reward. For Italian climber Jacopo Larcher, that process is no different – except this climb might actually be the hardest single pitch trad climb ever done.
