"His many outings in Mont Blanc include soloing the Droite’s Jackson route and down climbing the Ginat to arrive in time to pick up his daughter at kindergarden.... In Canada he has soled classics such as Polar Circus, Suffer Machine, Ice Nine, Lower Weeping Wall, and climbed with partners routes like Sea of Vapors, Curtain Call, Terminator, etc. Also in Europe he took care of climbing the classics, routes like the north face of the Eiger, north face of Matterhorn, Colton-McIntyre, Divine Providence, the Freney Pillar, etc."
Last winter I heard about all sorts of things getting done around Mt Blanc.
But the one that most impressed me was:
"soloing the Droite’s Jackson route and down climbing the Ginat to arrive in time to pick up his daughter at kindergarden"
