Staying connected to the people that represent our company is important to us. Whether Guides or Ambassadors, we are all connected by this simple activity that brings us joy, rock climbing. We decided to head out into the alpine this past weekend with a few of our Ambassadors to tick a couple classic routes in the Sierra. GSG Ambassadors Shane McNichol, Kory McAfee and Founder of GSG Ryan Hartegan hit the road late Friday evening for a quick strike mission up the beautiful North Arete of Crystal Crag and one of the most breathtaking lines in all of Yosemite, the Regular Route on Cathedral Peak. These images basically sum up the weekend, stellar climbing, great companionship, and one of the most stunning sunsets any of them had ever witnessed as they descended Cathedral Peak. Weekends like this remind us of how incredibly fortunate we are for the friendships we’ve forged over the years, the natural landscapes we have the privilege of exploring and this beautiful planet we get to call home.
GSG Ambassador Shane McNichol's been keeping busy with his recent move to Las Vegas. From nearly on-sighting the Original Route on the Rainbow Wall (weather was the only thing holding him and GSG Ambassador Orion Feist from completing the route) to a recent on-sight of Levitation 29, Shane's been taking full advantage of this beautiful vertical landscape in his backyard. Here he is on the send of "Times Up" (12a) in Red Rock, NV.
