A brave man. The gear - and the runouts! Thanks so much to Reg Phillips and you for us being able to see these photos.

P.S. I love the hole in the toe of his boot!

An amazing set of photos but it is this one which brings home the seriousness. A route like that on gear like this. Respect.

Brings back great memories, of days when what you had on your feet was less important than what you had in your head.
