Forty-three-year-old Yuji Hirayama is one of the great legends of modern climbing. For his ultimate climb, he recruits an unlikely partner in the goofy young American crusher Daniel Woods, who helps him achieve his dream route on the magical Mount Kinabalu, on the island of Borneo.
Alex Honnold and Tommy Caldwell team up to steal the coveted speed record on El Cap's Nose from two scrappy locals -- Brad Gobright and Jim Reynolds. Their ultimate goal is to climb the entire 3,000+ feet in under 2 hours.
In 2005, Tommy Caldwell made Yosemite big wall history by free climbing two El Capitan routes in a day, The Nose (5.14a, 30 pitches), and The Freerider (5.12d, 37 pitches) for a total of 6,000 feet of climbing in under 24 hours.
