This winter, Chris Schulte made his annual pilgrimage to Fontainebleau, France, to try his lifetime project–The Big Island (V15)–considered the hardest “up” problem in the magic forest. However, upon arrival, Schulte encountered bad weather and even worse … he got sick. But while being forced to let go, Schulte realized the value of this open-minded state, and as a result, found success on The Big Island.
