Here's a great short video about American climber and BASE jumper, Steph Davis as she talks about her relationship with the 'Tombstone' in Moab. This feature not only holds a very hard corner-crack climb, but is also one of the best BASE jumps in the area.
More than that, this video gives a glimpse in to a deep relationship with a sport, an area and a community.
