Conclusion: sturdy denim overalls, (mostly) bare feet and sunny yellow leather tops make for the best rock-navigation gear. And i sound like such a sissy but this was important given the possible '127 hours' situation we had on our hands. I was half scared i would fall and end up looking gollum-chic (or erase the 'chic') for the remainder of the shoot but also half excited at the new 'Dora the explorer' meets 'rock-climber-i-never-was' side of myself surfacing after a 16-year dormancy. And yes i would call it a dormancy instead of an absence ('it' being my inner-gollum) as it was always there but waiting for the appropriately sturdy yet large rocks to tempt a re-appearance. Since i'm starting to sound creepy (less smeagol, more gollum slash rock fetish) I'll leave it at that, but geez this was a fun shoot. More photos to come!
