  • Ancient Art - One Aesthetic Climb | Episode 2

    Ancient Art - The Coolest Top Out In Climbing? | North America's Fifty Classic Climbs, Episode 2

    WITH MARK & JANELLE SMILEY

    Episode 2 is live! From perfect splitters, terrible weather, dicey double cornices, stellar granite, Mark and Janelle Smiley saw a lot of what climbing had to offer in 2014. Each climb has attributes that make them unique and special. One look at Ancient Art in Utah's Fisher Towers and it's painfully clear what makes this climb a classic - it is remarkably aesthetic.

    Because of its sandstone composition, Ancient Art may very well be ancient history in the near future. Check out what makes this corkscrew classic so special, and get after it!
