Dean Potter has been pushing the progressive end of climbing and high lining for over 20 years. This film showcases one of his most challenging high line adventures, walking a high line over Yosemite Falls.
I’ve been working with Dean Potter my entire photographic career. When I was assigned to shoot a feature story about Yosemite for National Geographic, I knew that Dean would be an integral part of the story. He’s part genius, part mad man and all heart. When I asked what he wanted to do for the story, his first thought was to shoot the Yosemite Falls high line. I’m glad we did.
