FREE AS A BIRD

Free-climber (i.e., no ropes) Dean Potter is beautifully captured, scaling a route on Glacier Point called Heaven in Yosemite National Park.

An incredible shot by Mikey Schaefer that gives the Sifter goosebumps just looking at it. *shudder*
It also conjures up memories of the Lynyrd Skynyrd classic, Free Bird 🙂 Enjoy!
