The ZAP Project Episode 14: Paul and Adam Climb The Nose.
Saturday December 15, 2012 5:21pm
In Late October 2012 Paul and I climbed The Nose of El Capitan in three days as memorial to our friend Zachary Parke who posted here as Squatch. Please take the time to visit his blog and pay tribute to a part of our community that was taken from us too early.
