“In 1984 Vern and I sank our teeth into, what at the time was the ultimate game in Yosemite Valley. We made the one-day ascent of the West Face of El Capitan and the Nose of El Cap.”

I was born in 1956 in Verdun, France and grew up in the San Francisco Bay Area of California. Inthe 1970’s, I read an article by Sierra climbing and skiing legend Doug Robinson in which he described skiing the John Muir Trail without carrying a stove or maps. I had taken up climbing, skiing, and wilderness travel in my teens, and this article inspired me to take a winter tour of the same trail.
