In this brief, send-y footage, the accomplished big-wall climber grinds out an epic, bolted roof in the Vegas hills.
Jordan Cannon is no stranger to styling some of the most heroic rock climbs in the States. Though many know him for his high-octane performances in Yosemite Valley, the truth is that JCann is one of today’s finest all-around ascensionists.
In this stripped-down edit from Arc’teryx, Cannon spiders his way across “Countdown to Ecstasy,” a powerful, primarily horizontal sport route in picturesque southern Nevada. “Countdown,” he notes, is “perhaps the steepest 13a in the country.”
Press play and hang on until the very end when to see him somersault off into the expanse.
