I would like to introduce a selection of outdoor projects I filmed over the past 20 years. Projects include TV commercials shot in Zion and Yosemite, TV adventure series and a full-length documentary for the Outdoor Life Network about a first ascent in Baffin Island, where I climbed with three climbers documenting their progress to the summit.

Editor’s Note: The contributor, John Middendorf, is too modest to mention that he is the co-author with John Long of How to Rock Climb: Big Walls; that he made numerous first ascents during the 1970s, 1980s and 1990s on big walls in Yosemite and Zion as well as the groundbreaking first ascent of The Grand Voyage on Great Trango Tower in 1992. He also is known for his development of weatherproof portaledges in the ’80s and ’90s.
