Brian Gallant's Experience Climbing the Nose

 
Brian Gallant's Experience Climbing the Nose
 
May 21, 2010 -  Five Ten    
 

Brian Gallant climbs the nose in the new Five Ten High-top Grandstones. He completed the climb with record climber Hans Florine in just over 13 hours.

"I took the lead on the last two pitches to the summit; words can't describe how I felt when I saw that tree that you see in all the videos that is the top of the Nose! I did it! I finally finished my long-time dream to climb what most people consider the Best Climb in the World, and I did it with The Man, Hans Florine, who currently holds the speed record at 2:37! Our time ended up being 13 hours and 17 minutes, and I was so psyched, I would have been happy with just doing NIAD in 24 hours. To do it in just over a half a day was amazing!"
