ONE OF CLIMB­ING’S MOST BOLD

Gripped - - CONTENTS - by Chris Van Leu­ven

Brad Go­bright’s big wall part­ners re­call what it was like to climb with the leg­endary free soloist and speed climber.

From big wall speed climb­ing to hard free so­los to trad, Go­bright was one of the world’s top rock climbers be­fore he fell to his death on Novem­ber 27 while rap­pelling in El Potrero Chico, Mex­ico.

“My fam­ily is in agony right now,” Brad’s mother, Pamela Go­bright, posted on so­cial me­dia. “We will miss him so much. My heart breaks es­pe­cially for his sis­ter Jill. The fact that he will not be with her when we are old, or when we die. He will not be at her wed­ding or take her chil­dren to the moun­tains. It is so hard to bear.”
