Something Crazy, Something Different

In August 2006, Patagonia climbing ambassador Dean Potter free-soloed Heaven (5.12d/13a), a 40-foot overhanging crack that starts over 2,500 feet above the Yosemite Valley floor. Heaven was first freed by Ron Kauk in the mid-90s. You can see the video at Google Video here (Heaven) If you think that's bad ass also check out Potter soloing the Nose on El Capitan click here(the Nose).
