Wrapping up the final media release for my Spring '11 stint in Las Vegas, is this short film with Jonathan Siegrist. Released through Maxim Ropes, this little journey follows Jstar through his struggles and victories on the area's immaculate desert limestone. The film culminates with the first real video footage ever shot of Chris Sharma's historical test-piece, "Necessary Evil" 5.14C, a time-tested route which has seen very few ascents in the 16 years since it was first climbed.
The whole media game is changing at a rapid pace, and I find myself filming more than half of the time these days. I've always had a love for both and feel very blessed to do what I do. For me, the biggest satisfaction is when I can finally share the hard work and adventures with everyone. Enjoy the video. Cheers! - A
On a side note. The new bouldering guide to Colorado's high country was released yesterday and I was pleasntly surpirsed to see an image of mine on the front cover. Mount Evans and RMNP are dear to my heart and I'm really looking forward to flipping through this new guide! Dang.
