Andrew comes from a true climbing family and has been making the ten hour trip to the RRG, reading the guidebooks, and hanging out at the cliff since he could walk. Amazing to see this breakthrough trip for him.  At age 5 he reported to me that his grandmother had made an ascent of Thanatopsis 8b+/8c, the hardest route in the gorge at the time.
