Freddie Wilkinson, Mike Libecki, Keith Ladzinski, and Cory Richards explore the vicious and windy conditions of Queen Maud Land, Antarctica. 'The environment is so hostile you'd die up here in a matter of hours without the right gear and the right expertise.' Check out the video from National Geographic here -- stunning footage: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZRKsFAPpxgY --------------- Sonnie Trotter has just completed a new 5.14a! Sonnie Trotter has just completed his summer project, Castles in the Sky, on Castle Mountain in the Canadian Rockies. The bolted route, rated 5.14a, rises five pitches up a prow on a lower buttress of the mountain. While the route features moderate pitches of rock near the bottom, a dramatic overhanging arete guards access to the route's final and easier pitches. In an e-mail exchange with Rock and Ice, Trotter describes the 55-meter (180 feet) crux as 'lots of sidepulls and underclings ... a power-endurance climb.'
