According to Gripped magazine Brad Gobright is a one of the leading climbers in Yosemite these days. He had this to say on Instagram:

"I just free climbed the Muir Wall yesterday! I sent via The Shaft in a 17.5 hour battle. I’ve never fought so hard for anything in my life "

followed by a bunch of words that only make sense to rope climbers. That's not really the point. The point is it sounds like it was a big deal.

For those who don't know, the first free ascent of the Muir Wall was by Nick Sagar and Tommy Caldwell. The same Nick Sagar that gave Nova Scotia 17 magnificent climbs V10 and over. Nick was way ahead of his time, and our tiny backwater community owe's Nick Sagar an eternal debt of gratitude for the gifts he gave us while he was here. Respect.
