Josh Wharton is not scared to fall. Just watch this top-shelf video from John Dickey of Wharton climbing traditional mixed-terrain in Rocky Mountain National Park, and you will see for yourself."That's the exciting thing about onsight trad-mixed climbing," says Wharton in the film. "The falls are often unexpected."In the video, Wharton makes the first ascent, ground-up, of Two Dragons (M7). Seamlessly blending rock and ice climbing techniques while setting off into the unknown, Wharton demonstrates a mountain mastery that few possess. But on the second pitch, Wharton places a TCU behind a manky flake and then, well ... bombs away!
