Shasta Boyz and Wisdom Creations

This video was shown at the GoPro booth and at Sanuk during Outdoor Retailer in Salt Lake City this year. There was a very positive response and many companies shown prime interest in what we are doing. I had the pleasure to meet the artist Wisdom at a festival in Ashland where we connected and exchanged ideas. He was gracious enough to gift me his music rights in the support of our sport and we need to do the same in supporting his music This whole segment was edited to his beats so enjoy the little flick and look forward to seeing you all on the water.

Castle Crags Upgrade

After many weeks of work and injury recovery I was finally able to put 'The Flying Monkey' to rest. The Flying Monkey ascends the Marble Gully up the polished granite wall just right of Marbelous and features powerful bouldery climbing and technical gear placements. The highlight of the climb is a technical roof sequence which culminates in a dyno to a jug. The route is graded 5.13b(r) and is the hardest free climb yet established at the Castle Crags Wilderness. Thanks Shasta Base Camp for supporting another Castle Crags Classic.
