A multimedia video merging climbing and aerial dancing. It also tells the story of the collaboration needed to make aerial dancing on the backside of the Maiden possible. All illustrations available here: www.blownminds.blogspot.com

SOOO.... I guess I never realized the woman that did this were not tied in in some fashion. I just gained a shit ton of admiration for this art form and the performers.... Respect.

not climbing

Wholly crap!

Tim, I always thought you were a little crazy. Now its confirmed.
(Edit: I mean in a good way)

Awesome video Craig. Love the illustrations and music as usual.


Wild idea, but I can't stop thinking about that Myth Busters where they try rappelling on bed sheets.

Dropping a deuce

Not really dance, more of an acrobatic spectacle. So guys here appreciate videos of half naked women doing splits, surprising.

I'm pretty sure I saw that woman in a performance at the Dairy Center for the Arts a couple of winters ago. The performance was called the Ratcracker, and showed amazing athleticism and artistry I had never before witnessed, except while watching Olympic-level gymnastics. Watching performers ascent the fabric doing multiple one-armed pull ups, I couldn't help but think that they would all be outstanding rock climbers. The fabric that was used in that show was certainly not bed sheets, and my entire family watched the performance spellbound.

For myself, I kept thinking how bad it would have been if one of the highly-skilled performers made a mistake and fell onto the hard stage. Watching this amazing video took that concern to a whole other level. As a climber it is difficult not to envy her athleticism, grace and especially her mental control.

The mental aspect is most impressive to me. I bet she could out-climb 90% of the crusties and trusties on this site. And the iron-cross still photo gets my vote for best default pic.

Ashley used to perform with Frequent Flyers Productions out of Boulder, and then got hired down at Iluminar Aerial in Broomfield.

Both put on shows frequently, and I highly recommend catching more of their shows!

Also, Ashley doesn't climb, but she's one of the strongest people I know :D
