I've never seen people work that fast - they get shit done  Shocked  Very Happy

I always think it's important to say "Thanks" everytime I see them working in the wilderness, they have a dedication and enthusiasm without compare - very hard work, good job I say and thanks for all you do.

A little about Tomaz: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Toma%C5%BE_Humar

The majority of the video shows him climbing Reticent Wall on El Cap, which is a hard line. Really good stuff. Those moments are what life is all about. Very beautiful.

Here's the vid:

Cheers folks

In light of the recent accidents on Mt. Baldy, here is a video of a husband and wife who tried glissading off Mt. Whitney. The snow had frozen over in the shade and the lady took a 750 foot fall. Luckily, she survived.

She had an ice axe yet she could not self-arrest since she was out-of-control.  When you are in that situation you are hosed.  It is easy to loose control on a steep slope.

I used to hike the trails above Altadena through Monrovia during the late 80's but stopped decades ago. Over the past 7 years I have traversed the San Gabriel range the best I can via hang glider. On Monday I accomplished my lowest run ever between Brown Mountain and Muir Peak during the early stages of the San Gabriel Complex fire which appears in the background of my flight video.
I venture fairly close to a number of A number of popular trails and for anyone curious how this looks from an aerial vantage point I have edited this short video: https://youtu.be/Ffr02noCwyc
Cheers,
Jonathan

That is wild! Do you need a large, open area to land? You mentioned Mt Wilson; was that about taking off, or landing also? Clearly, what I'm asking is: can you visit remote ridges, and then take off again and go on your way?

I said a bunch of glider gibberish.   Laughing  But I did not inquire, "Do chickens have large talons?" Wink
I combed through your blog photos and lost count of the places I've flown over and past but have forgotten idea how great the views are from the trails. I have not hiked or mountain-biked since 1989.
