In this three part video series we follow Arc'teryx athlete Jonathan Siegrist (JStar) around North America as he hits different areas from Western Canada to Kentucky.
Along the way 'JStar' climbs new routes and repeats area classics, and ultimately faces his greatest challenge to date.
In the first episode, Jonathan travels to the Canadian Rockies to sample the limestone of Acephale and Planet X, then wraps up his Canadian tour with a stop at Lake Louise's quartzite crags.
In the second episode, Jonathan escapes the heat of Utah's lower valleys to find cooler conditions in the Wasatch Mountains. Jstar visits the relatively unknown crag "The Hoop", and repeats "Moose Licks", a thin and bouldery 5.14b.
In the final episode, Jonathan travels to the Red River Gorge of Kentucky to face his greatest challenge to date: The Vader Project. In the journey towards completing this project Jstar learns many lessons about first ascents, success and failure, and the psychological challenges of climbing full-time.
