The Dawn Wall
The Hardest Multipitch in The World
I had been dreaming about the Yosemite Valley since I first read Heinz Zak’s book Rock Stars. This book influenced the way I looked at climbing and my passion for it. Imagine a 7-year-old boy getting completely hooked on climbing, reading about the best climbers in history on all those iconic climbs. The Nose by Lynn Hill, Salathe by Alex Huber - these are pictures that inspired me so much. There was everything that I loved about climbing as I imagined it - the other side of the world, remote and unknown, amazing rocks, terrifying exposure, great climbers. Freedom, adventure… it all looked so cool.
