Vice Sports released the latest addition of its Moment series, which uses YouTube’s 360-degree viewer to immerse watchers in the lives of action-sports athletes, according to the series’ website.

In the third episode, Vice follows rock climber Sierra Blair-Coyle while she deep-water solos in her home state of Arizona. The 21-year-old explains that deep-water soloing, a technique in which athletes climb over water, without ropes, minimizes the potential for injury and opens up new climbing possibilities.
