Earlier in the winter Brits Mina Leslie-Wujastyk and David Mason went on an extended bouldering road trip around the USA. They travelled to Joe's Valley, Yosemite, Ibex, Bishop and more.

Mina climbed loads of hard problems, as did David, and we featured Mina's ascents in a few UKC News Items last November and December.

Now we have a set of nicely put together videos of classic problems from David Mason, mainly featuring Mina, but with a few clips of David too.

If you're thinking of going bouldering in the USA (yes please!) then check out these videos that will be popping up on UKC over the course of the next few weeks.

Here's the first:

Joe's Valley highballs, introduced by Mina Leslie-Wujastyk:

"This video features two stunning lines from Joe's Valley. Both high, but funnily enough, due to where the crux lay, the easier one was more of a battle. I have become more accustomed to climbing high above pads but the normal beta on Wind Below demands a committing dynamic move in the top section. I climbed up there a few times before I found a more controlled method and was able to grit my teeth and forget about the drop below! It proved quite a mental challenge and one of my most rewarding experiences of the trip."

Problems featured in this video are: Prince of Thieves (V10) and Wind Below (V6).

Hi - video is working fine for us here - maybe try refreshing or force refreshing your browser? You should be looking at the domain for it to work. Thanks, Jack

Ah I suspect this is something to do with my network, works on the wireless but not the wired! Really nice video.

You get the impression on the second problem that Mina totally ignores the perfectly good, aesthetic, moves and climbs past them instead. How rude.
