Adventure Travel
Peter Croft.

Here at ExWeb, when we’re not outdoors, we get our adventure fix by exploring social media and the wider interweb. Sometimes we’re a little too plugged in, and browsing interesting stories turns from minutes into hours. To nourish your own adventure fix, here are some of the best links we’ve discovered this week…

Peter Croft: Legendary Canadian climber and mountaineer talks about his climbing roots in Squamish and how he made the leap to the towering cliffs of the Yosemite Valley.

Rebuilt: Craig DeMartino writes about how he survived a 300m ground fall in 2002 and how he mentors others who have suffered life-changing injuries.

In Pursuit: Yukon native Peter Maher chases the migration of the caribou on his home turf, hoping to capture the perfect image of this ancient event.

Whispers: Kayaker Will Copestake reflects on the importance of fear during his solo circumnavigation of Scotland by kayak.
