Not 'news' as such, but a great short film of a very impressive mixed climb:

Cedar Wright introduces his film:

"Watch Sam Elias climb Red Bull and Vodka an impressive Mixed climb on Vail Pass that ventures out a hundred and twenty feet of tiered roof madness! The climb overhangs over fifty feet, and finishes on the Fang one of the most iconic ice climbs in the world.

I shot most of this with the 5d mark II, and used a GH2 as the b-cam. For the opening scene I used a Kessler Pocket Dolly, to create some movement."


Sam Elias is sponsored by The North Face, Black Diamond, Scarpa, Blue Water Ropes, Oakley, Nutriex

Red Bull can f=off out of mountaineering. We don't want your vile cough-mixture.

you'd probably be better placed to tell David Lama to f off out of climbing, he's a grown man who should have known better. anyways, it only a route name, i dont even think Sam Elias is sponsored by red bull.
