I first met Nathan a few years ago at Millstone in the Peak District.
He was with his friend Oli Lyon psyched to get some jamming and aid practise in for a trip to Yosemite. They both were hooked on the place. Since that day he’s made numerous trips to Yosemite to climb the walls there which guarantee fun, games and an adventure.
Last November he came into the shop to ask about getting a porta-ledge for some solo plans. It sounded like a great trip so I ordered one in straight away.
We put it up in the shop the instant it came in, then he spoiled the fun and took it away to give it some real use.
Kindly he wrote up an account of his trip which contains loads of useful information, hints, tips and just how much determination it takes to get up one of these walls on your own. I’ve made the account available as a PDF download for you to read. Please find the link here - Big Wall Solo, Yosemite article.
