You've probably heard that the founder of North Face died this week. Here is a cool article about High Sierra first descents he completed with Royal Robbins. Cool kayaking history.

Nice! Those "transparent" boats look like Perception Mirages, which was my first hip pads or back bands in those stock boats.
