One of the most iconic photos in climbing, IMO.

Classic photo beyond belief. I rapped that route back in the early 80s to shoot Hidetaka Suzuki on it. The exposure is astounding. From where WG is in this pic, it's hundreds and hundreds of feet straight down to nothing. And yet he looks as calm as if he was on his favorite V1 boulder problem. Amazing.

Remember seeing this on the cover of a magazine when I was first getting into climbing and just being astounded by how rad it was. Still there 15 years later.

The soul of a free soloist comes from a different dimension. That's unreal!
