Tyrolean Traverse

The latest Smiley's project is the Tyrolean traverse on the Lost Arrow Spire in Yosemite. Read the story of their climb here. In the video below, she asks him “Are you sure you know what you’re doing?” I love that part.

“Let me paint the picture. The walls of the Yosemite Valley are about 2000 feet tall. The Spire pulls away from the wall right at the top, creating this 200-foot tall rock finger island that towers above it all.”
