Black Diamond - First Ascent at Helmcken Fall, Canada

image

You should definitely take a few minutes to watch this video of Klemen Premrl and Tim Emmett’s amazing first/second ascents in this icy terrain.

There’s steep ice and then there is STEEP ice. Tucked away in Wells Grey Provincial Park in British Columbia, Canada, Helmcken Falls offers the wildest, steepest and most difficult ice climbing in the world (some climbs are nearly as overhanging as they are long). Filmer Wiktor Skupinski was on the scene last year and captured the following video of BD athletes Will Gadd, Raphael Slawinski, Klemen Premrl and Tim Emmett all working on a new route, which Premrl and Emmett eventually made the first and second ascents of back-to-back.

This could mean a lot of new things for Chrome! I’m already downloading the beta to test out the feature a little. I’ve got a pretty good idea for implementing it on the website alongside a new project that should hopefully kick off in the early spring.

Many thanks to Mashable for pointing this out.

Soon, you will be able to craft emails in Google Chrome using only your voice. Google updated the beta feed of its Chrome browser Monday with developer support for the Web Speech API.

The Web Speech API is a JavaScript API that lets web developers integrate speech recognition into their websites and web apps.

really want a raspberry pi..

Pretty full featured programmable controller. I should have bought one when they were last in stock. This is a great base for a seemly endless amount of do-it-yourself or polished professional products. I’ve already thought about making a UAV quadricopter style, a wire-fly camera that follows the person its recording, mini media server, a weather station, and a few other things. If you’re a homebrew fan you should grab one of these when they come back in stock.

Back from Joshua Tree

Here’s the best selection of the pictures from our recent camping trip to Joshua Tree. We stayed in the Indian Cove campground from December 21-24. The weather was surprisingly nice which explains why there were still so many people willing to be out in the cold!
