Jimmy Chin: Climbing Yosemite

Photographer and mountain climber Jimmy Chin gave this talk about his National Geographic project to capture the amazing climbing sub culture around Yosemite back in 2011.

Chin, who traveled the world searching for ideal climbing and photography locations for years, pitched the idea to NG and got their approval to do an in-depth cover story looking at the different aspects of the lives of the climbers who risk everything for a few moments at the top.
