Rad solo hooking on the Golden Nipple of Native Son



It's amazing what some people will do given the proper motivation. Take me, for instance.

I was hangin' out at the base of El Cap fixing pitches for my solo ascent of Native Son.

Suddenly up walks Chris Falkenstein, the well-known Yosemite photographer. He agrees that next weekend he will schlep six hundred feet of rope up to the summit, along with all his camera and movie gear, so he could rappel down to take this bitchin' photo!

What can I say about Chris except,

"He's just The Shit!
