Cedar Wright and Matt Segal visited 9NEWS to talk about their participation in The North Face Speaker Series on Monday.

Wright and Segal are new to film making, but they are practically experts at rock climbing. Deciding to "find a faster way down the mountain," they tried something all new to them: paragliding.

Just 10 months after learning the basics, Segal and Wright set out to climb to 18,000 feet and fly off of the highest volcano in Mexico: Pico De Orizaba.

The North Face Speaker Series is at the Denver Athletic Club. Find out more about the event here: http://bit.ly/1MLzIMn.
