This is the first North Face sponsored North Face "Psicoblog." These short videos will chronicle North Face Athletes Cedar Wright, Emily Harrington, Matt Segal, and James Pearson pushing their limits on the wild sea cliffs of Mallorca. The climbing here is known as "Deep Water Solo," or "Psicobloc" climbing and involves climbing ropeless on cliffs as tall as sixty feet with nothing but the swirling ocean below to catch your fall. This has to be one of the most thrilling and pure forms of climbing I have ever experienced. This episodes capture the my initial impressions of the area, while I wait for the rest of the team to arrive!! I will create about ten of these short videos from the field in Mallorca. Hope you enjoy them!! Cedar Wright.

Wooohooo!! Welome to Mallorca Psicoblogs!!! I've been in Mallorca for over twenty four hours now and had my first taste of Deep Water Soloing. I have to say I LOVE IT!!! I started out my experience with a thirty foot whipper into the ocean!! Stay tuned for more dispatches with The North Face rockstars Emily Harrington, Alex Honnold, Matt Segal, James Pearson!!!
