Ladies: Here’s Why You Should Consider Going to This Festival

Shelma Jun founded the Women's Climbing Festival one year ago. She didn't really know what would come of it, but when the event sold out in 24 hours and 200 women showed up from all around the country, she knew this was something women were looking for. Now, she's gearing up for round two.

For one weekend, hundreds of women will gather for the second annual Women's Climbing Festival in Bishop, California. There will be clinics, demos, speeches from pros, and a lot of climbing. The main goal fo the festival is to help connect female climbers, but you don't even have to be a climber to attend. 

Have you ever thought about getting into climbing? You should go to this festival. Have you started climbing but can't find partners? You should go to this festival. Have you had trouble meeting women climbers in your town? You should go to this festival. 

I know I'm going (and I think we need a festival like this for skiers, too). 

The event is March 3-5, 2017. Get yours

Jeb Corliss is known for pushing the limits of action sports, and this video is no exception.  With virtually no room for error, the "Death Star line" is yet another example of Corliss' fearless approach to wingsuiting.   Related: How Did Jimmy Chin Stay Fit Filming Free Solo?

Video: Urban Climbing is Not for the Faint of Heart

While Alex Honnold might get the fame for his free solos, this crew of young Coloradans pursues their own form of climbing: buildering. Taking full advantage of the urban playground right outside their door, these climbers put up challenging routes where most people look every day but would never think to climb. Boulder-based filming outfit Pop Top Productions documented some of these climbs in their new film , a clever take on the classic climbing film genre. Mix some hair-raising urban free
