Good friends, classic problems, and a relative lack of real-world responsibility: Bouldering trips are hard to beat. When several members of our Southeast grassroots team, Michael Rosato (@mikerosay), Al Smith, Keith Share (@sharekeith), Dan Horne, Billy Brown (@southernsteeze), Eric Eigner, and Kaitlyn Honnold (@khonnold), got together in Red Rock, Nevada, over New Year’s 2016, they worked about every problem they could get their hands on and put together a pretty sweet little edit of their trip. We asked the crew a few questions about their experience in one of America’s premiere climbing destinations. Here’s what they had to say.
Sean McColl works through M3 in the finals of CWIF 2016.
SCARPA’s newest global athlete Sean McColl did work last week. On March 12, he took home the win against an incredibly stacked field that included Rustam Gelmanov, Jan Hojer, and Jimmy Webb at the Climbing Works International Festival (CWIF) in Sheffield, England. The the technical finals problems played well into Sean’s style. “I managed to pull a couple “off-the-book” climbs,” said McColl of his comp experience. “And adventure my way through some tricky boulders to win the event.” Men’s final’s problem #3 was the real crowd pleaser, requiring insane body tension and some creativity. Watch the problem here. Continue reading...
Sean McColl needs no introduction. He’s one of the world’s most prolific climbers with an incredible resume both indoors and out. And we’re incredibly excited to announce that Sean has joined the SCARPA global athlete team in 2016, further establishing SCARPA as the go-to rock shoe brand for performance-driven climbers. We caught up with Sean to chat about climbing, training, his future goals, and the new SCARPA-Sean McColl partnership.

SCARPA athlete Doug Evans gets after it. A landscaper by trade with a few odd jobs scattered in there the rest of the year, he’s structured his entire life around snow sliding and face shots. His Instagram feed (@Dougtheskier) will make the weekend warrior drool. As of November 11, 2016, he’s already logged several memorable days in the Colorado high country extending his streak to 171 consecutive months of skiing. But to get the rest of us stoked for what we hope is to come, we asked him to recount his five favorite days from Winter 2014/15 while he was testing our award-winning Freedom boots. From epic deepness in Taos, New Mexico, to long summer-ski missions on the Front Range, he sets the standard for a passionate skier logging almost 160 days last season. Let’s hope this season shapes up as good as last.

Along the way, they may have been forced to leave something behind, but through their migration, they have discovered a treasure all their own. Watch the trailer below.
