"enlightening the world, one frame at a time"
Friday November 30
Featured Guests tonight:
~ WILL GADD, the extreme ice climber, filmmaker, activist, star of ICE REVOLUTION.
~ ANDY LEWIS, the world's greatest slack liner and star of SKETCHY ANDY.
~ CONRAD ANKER, one of the most esteemed, versatile mountaineers, star of SHARK FIN, via Skype.
In 2008, Conrad Anker, Jimmy Chin and Renan Ozturk completed a first-ascent of one of the most difficult and sought after routes in mountaineering: a granite buttress called the Shark’s Fin on the 6,310-meter peak Meru Central in India.
Remember the guy on the slackline who nearly stole the spotlight from Madonna during her Super Bowl XLVI Halftime Show? That was “Sketchy” Andy Lewis, professional slackliner, base jumper, and highliner. A lovable bohemian, pioneering athlete and fearless maniac, Andy has pushed the edge of slacklining, turning it into a breathtaking acrobatic sport.
This is the wildest competition known to man: the speed climbing record on El Capitan. For 50 years, the world's best climbers have been racing each other up this massive 3,000 foot, vertical granite monolith in Yosemite National Park, risking life and limb! We follow Dean Potter and Sean Leary on their attempt to break the legendary record on the route that has been the scene of epic rivalries, brutal accidents and daring achievements.

Welcome to Helmcken Falls, British Columbia, a surreal and frozen place that defies the rules of technical ice climbing. Ice Revolution follows extreme climbers Will Gadd and Tim Emmett as they pioneer a radical route through a field of unstable hoarfrost ice spikes, created by waterfall spray on a massive, inverted rock face.
