Video of the Day: Slopers, crimpers and sticking the rail in Squamish.

There are a collection of climbs throughout the world that simply cannot be ignored – Dreamcatcher (5.14d) is one of those legendary routes. Every self-respecting climber kid has seen this video a thousand times, so I felt it was my duty to spread the glory of Chris Sharma’s beautiful first ascent of this route in Squamish, BC.

Feel free to skip ahead to the 2:19 mark, where the music speeds up into this groovy, jazzy goodness that I wish I could have playing in the background every time I climb. Seriously, I will give $10 to whoever can tell me the name of that song.

The beautiful line, Sharma’s seemingly effortless climbing and damn, that song! These three ingredients blend together to create an excellent video for climbers and non-climbers alike. Enjoy.
