The first video features Hazel Findlay talking about 'risk' and what role it plays within her own climbing experience. This is the fifth in a series by Black Diamond. Previous episodes have featured; Alex Honnold, Samuel Anthamatten, Conrad Anker, and Joe Kinder.

The second video shows British ex-pat, Dan Smith, making the 2nd ascent of Chris Sharma's Trifecta Middle, 8B at Flock Hill in New Zealand. You can read more about Dan climbing the problem in the UKC News Report.
