Don’s been climbing out here in Yosemite for 30 years, he soloed the Zodiac in the early 90’s and is now helping my efforts to dial in on big wall climbing. There’s a lot of knowledge that’s been acquired over a long period of time to be passed on, and it’s really cool to see all the intricate details that he has refined over the years. And check out the 90’s era @eaglecreek fanny pack! That thing’s a classic!
I’ve posted this picture a lot... but it’s still one of my favorites, and of one of my favorite people. This was the last big Yosemite trip I did with Gil before he passed away, I’ll be back in Yos today thinking about this guy.
I have to admit that alpine climbing doesn’t really appeal to me, but then I see views like this and I imagine standing on a ridge line just above the clouds and it suddenly holds more appeal. #newzealand@icebreakernz
Team @icebreakernz hiking out for the sunrise location. It’s tough not being the photographer on these but I’m super excited to see what photographers @tom_powell_photo and @jasonckelly got from this awesome location!
