Walking a Record-Breaking 3,346 Feet on a Slackline Over Mountains Is Truly Crazy

When you smash the previous world record of walking on a highline of 1,640 feet—by doubling it over, walking on the slackline for 3,346 feet, you are truly fearless. When you do it in the sweeping mountains of Aiglun, France and walk as if you’re not afraid to fall, extreme can’t even begin to describe you. That’s…

These Drones Dancing in the Air Against a Mountain Look Like Real Life Space Invaders

Here’s a really fun drone ballet performed in front of Mount Fuji in Japan. The drones look a lot like and move a lot like the aliens you shoot down in the classic video game Space Invaders. The whole dancing drone thing is really cool (especially when set against the mountain) but what would be even cooler is if…

The First Person View of Climbing a Snowy 22,000-Foot Tall Mountain Is a Little Bit Terrifying

If there is a mountain, people will climb it. Or at least, people that are much, much bolder than I am. Here is some incredible point of view footage from David Lama and Conrad Anker as they become the first expedition to reach the headwall of Lunag Ri, a mountain that’s over 22,000 feet tall on the border of Nepal…

Skier Somehow Survives a Terrifying 1,000-foot Tumble Down a Mountain

I don’t know how this is possible (but I am very thankful it is) but immediately after skiier Angel Collinson tumbled 1,000 feet down the side of an Alaskan mountain, she sat up and told everyone that she was going to walk back up the mountain to get her stuff. I mean, how bad ass is that. After being put in the…

Skier miraculously survives a 1,600 foot fall off the side of a mountain

The slope is impossibly steep and the snow looks fresh and it looks like the craziest line a skier can run through but one misstep and things can go real bad, real fast. That’s what happened to skier Ian McIntosh, who fell into a trench on one of his turns and then plummeted 1,600 feet in a free fall against the snowy…

Video: A totally stunning aerial tour of forests and mountains

I’m a city person. I like buildings and bridges and streets and corners. I like angles and materials and signs and lights. But even I can let my jaw hang throughout this entire video about forests and mountains. The aerial video filmed by Earth Porn Films starts with the greenery of Alberta, Canada and transforms into…

Watching Patagonia's sky fill up with clouds is so beautifully ominous

This whole timelapse video, Patagonia 8K by Timestorm Films, is totally worth watching in its entirety just to see the landscapes of southern Chile and Argentina but I especially enjoy the clip right above where the scattered clouds dance and merge together to form a dense layer that completely blocks out the sky. You…

This bike rider riding along the side of the mountain is defying gravity

Here is Michal Kollbek harnessing his inner mountain goat and riding the White Line in Sedona, Arizona. It looks like a flat surface—that is, the wrong kind of flat surface that's next to you like a wall and not under you like the road— he's riding on and him not slipping down the steep slide is totally defying the…
