I feel unbelievably lucky that Scott Bennett and I got to write an article for Alpinist. I also somehow managed to get to be on the cover of the magazine.  

It was cool to take a look at what happens in a magazine before it reaches your hands. Being a part of the process was a great learning experience. I was unable to put as much effort into the article as Scott Bennett did because I was getting started with the Yosemite Search and Rescue Team. Just as I began to help finish up the article, a call came out to go look for a kid in the High Sierras. I got flown out in a helicopter that afternoon, and the kid was found the next day.

In Climbing Magazine, Blake Herrington also wrote an article about the gear that Scott and I took on The North Pillar Sit Start.
