Video: Jumpy, the Parkour Dog

We all think our dogs have superhero powers. Jumpy actually does. His human friend is not so bad, either.

See our favorite classic, emerging, and secret ski towns. On March 1, the very first day of 38-year-old ski mountaineer Greg Hill’s own version March Madness—to climb and ski 100,000 vertical meters (300,000+ feet) in just 31 days—he took his two kids, ages 7 and 8, to their first summit on British Columbia’s 8,086-foot Mount Mackenzie.…

Austrian climber David Lama was transformed by his experience on Cerro Torre. As he said in his Adventurer of the Year profile, “Cerro Torre will always be a special mountain to me. It changed me from a sport climber into an alpinist.” After five expeditions to the region in order to complete the first free ascent…

See more about Everest. The 2014 Everest climbing season is upon us and teams have already begun their treks to base camp. Each season has its own surprises and headlines, with last year’s “Everest fight” stirring a media blitz. The 2014 season will see some  changes, with new regulations in place to attempt to reduce…

Even after all the magazine covers and films, Alex Honnold still lives in his van—though now it’s hooked up with solar power. And last week Alex and fellow climber Cedar Wright departed on a solar-focused adventure for Sufferfest 2—a month of biking, camping, and climbing through the Southwest that will culminate in bringing solar power to Navajo…

Cerro Torre is such a difficult climb that only the climbers themselves can document the upper reaches. “The more remote my expeditions became, the more important it was for  me to document them myself,” says 23-year-old Austrian climber David Lama. See what went into filming the Adventurer of the Year‘s historic first free ascent of Patagonia’s…

Climbing in Patagonia can be a weather waiting game. But when the conditions are unsuitable on the peaks, adventures abound in the climbing gateway town of El Chaltén, Argentina. Here we see David Lama, one of our 2013 Adventurers of the Year, enjoying a little R+R before making his historic first free ascent of Cerro…

In webisode #2 from the film Cerro Torre: A Snowball’s Chance in Hell, Austrian climber David Lama, one of our Adventurers of the Year, explains the history of the Compressor Route and the difference between aid climbing and free climbing. Be sure to click on “CC” in the video player on the lower right to get…

Austrian climber David Lama‘s incredible natural abilities to ascend things showed at an early age. After mastering sport climbing, David, now 23 years old, shifted his focus and aspirations to free climbing and alpinism, eventually to claim one of the greatest free ascents in history—the first free ascent of the Southeast Ridge on Patagonia’s Cerro…

Adventure educators Amy and Dave Freeman have built their lives around using technology to bring outdoor adventure into the classroom through their organization Wilderness Classroom. The Minnesotan couple, two of our Adventurers of the Year, just completed their three-year, nearly 12,000-mile North American Odyssey, which engaged more than 85,000 schoolkids. Here, learn more about their story and how they…

Climber Will Gadd and photographer Christian Pondella, a dream team athlete-photographer duo with 15 years of experience working together, worked together to get this shot on the first ascent of Overhead Hazard. Will claims it is the hardest route multi-pitch mixed route in the world so far and the coldest he has ever been—now that’s saying…

Alex Honnold just did his first climb in Patagonia. And it was pretty spectacular. He teamed up with Tommy Caldwell to make the first ascent of the Fitz Traverse, which involved climbing seven peaks in five days along the Cerro Fitz Roy ridge line. Honnold and Caldwell waited for their weather window, then covered three miles…

We just heard back from Alex Honnold, who has been busy in Patagonia pulling off an epic feat of alpinism with Tommy Caldwell—a complete traverse of the Fitzroy Massif in five days. The Internet connection in Patagonia is so slow that Alex has not actually seen the video everyone is talking about of his ropeless…

Video: Snowboarding New York City

What to do when you have snow but no vertical? This. We give Casey Neistat major points for style and creativity on this one. Don’t try this at home.

We take our selection of the Adventurers of the Year very seriously. We want to find just the right mix of people who are pushing the boundaries of what’s possible in the world of adventure, whether that’s through feats of elite outdoor athleticism and exploration or giving back to the community in authentic ways. We…

A few days ago snowboarder Kevin Pearce, one of our Adventurers of the Year honorees, arrived in Russia to help carry the torch to the Sochi Olympics. This is his first Winter Games. Kevin was destined for Olympic podium glory until a crash on the half pipe left him with a traumatic brain injury—just before…

Video: The Balloon Highline

When climbing/BASE jumping pioneer Steph Davis says she loves something, as she just did about this video on Facebook, we’re instantly curious. “It’s so beautiful, so group-oriented, so technically demanding, so unique … so French!” Davis marveled in a follow-up email. This may be a stunt, but we could not stop watching. And only realized…

These videos both involve a balloon rising to the edge of space with cameras pointing back at Earth. One project was very high budget. The other decidedly low. Yet they each provide a new perspective. First, we have a deeper look at the “space dive” by People’s Choice Adventurer of the Year Felix Baumgartner—who was…

See more photos like these in our Extreme Photo of the Week gallery. “It’s always a challenge to wake up and climb in the dark, but the glow of sunrise makes it all worthwhile. These are the moments I live for,” says Utah-based, big-mountain skier Caroline Gleich of this moment on the south ridge of Mount Superior…

We got an email today from Boston-based engineering student Julian Tryba about a timelapse video he made of Hawaii. We were swept away by his gorgeous images of Maui and Oahu, a wonderful antidote to the wintertime blues. He clearly hiked up to some high-quality views. We hope you will enjoy it. Here Julian explains…

The multifaceted Renan Ozturk, one of our previous Adventurers of the Year, has many stories to share—even more than we realized. We first came to know Renan years ago when he was a new North Face-sponsored climber who liked to paint and animate mountainscapes while on expeditions. That love of visuals and storytelling led him to…

Last night ABC News’s Nightline featured the story of Sano Babu Sunuwar and Lakpa Tsheri Sherpa, our 2012 People’s Choice Adventurers of the Year.  The two Nepali friends completed The Ultimate Descent by climbing Everest, paragliding down, and kayaking to the Indian Ocean. It was a source-to-sea expedition beyond compare. And they did it without…
