VIDEO: Freerider by Jacob Cook

Last Spring Jacob Cook, Bronywn Hodgins and Chris Bevins travelled to Yosemite to climb Freerider on El Capitan. Jacob and Chris managed to free the route and - as is typical of this crazy crew - an inflatable shark and Hawaiian shirts featured heavily in their efforts.

Jacob has finished the video edit of their climb, and in-keeping with the humour and style of his Moonlight Buttress video, the latest offering continues to give the impression that no other team has ever had so much fun on a gnarly big-wall... 

"In Spring 2015 Bron and I made our second trip to Yosemite. We teamed up with Chris Bevins to climb El Capitan using only our hands and feet! We spent 6 days and 5 nights living on the wall, climbing Freerider 5.13a. Chris and I lead or followed every pitch free. Dragons, frogs, lions and sharks feature, can you spot them all?"
