Delicate Arch Climbing

The Reel Rock Film Festival featured a film about Dean Potter. He’s quite an accomplished climber but he got into big trouble a few years by climbing Delicate Arch in Arches National Park in Utah.  Patagonia stopped sponsoring him and his then-wife Steph Davis lost her job. More details here. The first two minutes of this video show his climb of the Arch and his version of the story.

(I’ve been at the base of the Arch many times and can easily see the appeal of climbing it.)
