Summit Videos -- Capitol Peak and more!

I've had a gopro since christmas and have been making videos from my hikes. Check out my videos if you'd like! I currently have one of Mt. Lindsey's ridge from a few weeks ago and got a sweet close up of a marmot. He sniffed my gopro in my extended hand.

I will be posting a knife edge video tomorrow as well that gives a great perspective of what to expect.

If you have any sweet hiking/climbing/kayaking/biking or just plain adventuring videos I'd love to watch them!

Enjoy!

Just checked out your Capitol video; AWESOME!!!!! nice video and presentation. Thanks for letting me be a partner on your climb. I'll drink a beer to your great adventure. :iluvbeer: Looking forward to more from you.

Glad you liked it! It was nice being on arguably the toughest 14er in Colorado with such great friends and being able to meat genuinely nice people.

Here's the full length Knife Edge video. It actually starts on the shorter Knife edge section before the main one.

GoPRO over the Knife's Edge is dramatic stuff. I think it actually makes it worse than it is. Anytime one of my non-climber friends doesn't get the fact that the 14ers aren't just simple hikes up a mountain...I show them this.

Great video also; airy and hairy. But your video from the Mt. Wilson-El Diente traverse scares the heck out of me; all that loose rock and unstable crud. Whew!! THAT is one that gets me every time. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jJfFAeq2on0

A September Hike on Redcloud/Sunshine... What a beautiful day! Totally got to watch some young bucks go at it (end of video). I missed filming the head butting ;)
