NEW WEEKEND WHIPPER: Carabiner on Quickdraw Breaks in Half! 😧This likely resulted from a combination of things, including something called gate flutter—we can’t be certain—but one thing’s for sure: watching this causes our guts to flutter.

Hey all, @kevintakashismith here, my last day at the reins here at Frictionlabs.
Here’s a little throwback clip of @_keenan_t flawlessly executing “Speed of Sound” in Rocklands, South Africa to get you hyped for those weekend projects. This has always been one of my favorite clips because the pressure was on and Keenan knew he had basically one chance to fire this climb. He took a minute to collect his thoughts, pulled on, and climbed every move of the problem perfectly. His shock and elation at the top of this boulder is still one of my favorite reactions of all time.
My goal as a videographer is to honor the psyche that my friends have, to help them present their best work. My goal in the future is to not only show the sends and the glory, but the full story behind the biggest climbs of these athletes’ lives. Many thanks to @frictionlabs for helping to support filmmakers and climbers, you’re keeping the stoke alive.
