Fastpacking the Tahoe Rim Trail
The Tahoe Rim Trail forms a complete loop 165 miles around the Lake Tahoe Basin on the border of California and Nevada. A thru-hike of the trail typically takes 10-15 days. My friend Adam and I had planned on fastpacking the trail over a 5 day period in late June. The only problem is that this happened to be a particularly high snow year, with snowpack in the Sierra Nevada range at over 200% of average, and 33 times the levels of the previous year. We never could have anticipated just how much of a challenge that would prove to be.
Petzl Roc Trip Argentina
Located in the heart of the Patagonian pampas, in Argentina’s Chubut province, Piedra Parada’s monolith rises up from the surrounding desert. Lying just to the north, the majestic La Buitrera Canyon was home to the Petzl RocTrip. For more than a week, climbers from all over the world came together to share a common passion: climbing.
Wild Racers – Episode 24 – Switzerland
The race is still wide open despite the extreme physical and mental fatigue. The immeasurable ability of our athletes to believe in themselves is fascinating. 25km kayaking which now feels like 50 followed by Mountain Bike/Raft 110km in harsh conditions and a 70 km trek as a final leg is the final torture awaiting the teams.
