This Insane Speed Riding Video Is Making Our Friday—And It’ll Change The Way You Look At Mountains

These pio­neers are defy­ing every­thing we thought pos­si­ble in the mountains.

Canopy-wielding moun­tain pio­neers are out there chang­ing the way we look at the alpine by descend­ing mon­sters that were pre­vi­ously thought unrideable—and you’ve never seen any­thing like it.

Myself, and a buyer at The Clymb, Brett Cas­sidy, were camp­ing at the Deschutes River and we had the good for­tune to give these new 180 South tents that are exclu­sive to The Clymb a trial run. The world-famous salmonfly hatch was on, and a cur­sory glance at the river­bank grass revealed these thumb-sized bugs in abun­dance. I was anx­ious to wet my line, so I jumped out of

Chris Burkard is lead­ing an adven­ture pho­tog­ra­phy course at The Clymb HQ on March 27. Space is extremely lim­ited and going fast. Don’t miss out!

Every shoot I find myself on offers a unique set of difficulties—but a few of them have been harder than the rest. My most chal­leng­ing pho­tog­ra­phy sce­nar­ios so far have required me to main­tain focus while immersed in freez­ing surf, bat­tling treach­er­ous waves, scram­bling through deep snow­storms, fac­ing scream­ing winds, and while hang­ing by a rope 3,000 feet above Yosemite Val­ley floor.
