Greatest Athletic Feat: Walking in a full Lightning storm in the Desert. It was erupting from the ground like geysers of light. I could see it building then erupting to the sky. Pretty amazing I didn't die. I suppose sending V14 in the Desert was a big deal for a guy who doesn't sweat and also sending Sarchasm 5.14+ at 12,000ft elevation in September was cool too. I have had many many Athletic achievements. I was the first American to send 5.14 and V12 in the same day with a total of 12 miles of hiking to complete the task.
