Portrait of an El Cap soloist. Adam aka kindredlion making it happen.



poop-tube has a photo including five El Cap soloists. I think that has to be some sort of record. It pops up in his Mescalito vid.

Bouldering is big wall training for those two moves before most belays; best done on low angle problems with no holds while wearing a backpack.

so glad I'm not climbing in a bod harness anymore for aid. yikes!

had something to do with how he climbed it having one bare foot helped in some way or another. i think the problem is called the sasquatch or bigfoot or something along those lines.
