In climbing I do things that I enjoy and want to do not the ones that are currently in fashion.

- British Route 5.12, Nalumasortoq, first free ascent, partner: Nathan Martin



- Titanic Variation VI 5.10 A2 WI6, 1200 m, Torre Egger, partner: Nathan Martin, new variation to Italian-Austrian route in 59 hours from the glacier, first alpine-style ascent of Torre Egger, partner: Nathan Martin

That was for sure the hardest and most dangerous alpine climbing of my life. No placements… at midnight… in a snowstorm. The last 100 feet was rime ice with no gear. It was so intense I didn’t even turn my headtorch on.

Tim O’Neill, “Climbing” No. 213


- Tonta Suerte (Dumb Luck) VI 5.10 A1 WI3, 1800 m, Cerro Fitz Roy, West Face, new route done in 51-hour push, partner: Nathan Martin
- Regular Route, Half Dome + South Face, Mt. Watkins + The Nose, El Capitan, echainment, first one day (23: 45) ascent of three Yosemite grade VI walls on different cliffs, more than 80 pitches on three different walls in a day, partner: Dean Potter

- The Nose, El Capitan, two speed records: 3:59:35 and 3:24:04, partner: Dean Potter

Until recently, I had felt that the current Nose record [4:22] was unbeatable, impossible, super-human; after all it was Peter [Croft] and Hans [Florine] – two longtime, polished Valley speed denizens – who had established that benchmark.
