VIDEO: Partial Amputee, Craig DeMartino Tops Out El Cap!

The always inspiring Craig DeMartino of the Gimp Monkeys crew along with Jarem Frye and Pete Davis fired the classic Zodiac_VI 5.7 A3 route on El Capitan over the past summer. Having climbed Zodiac myself, with all my appendages intact, I can tell you first hand the Gimp Monkey's ascent truly pushes the envelope of physical and mental "limits."

Footnote: Craig and his family are members at Miramont. His presence always pushes other climbers to try just a bit harder as he is usually cruising their projects... ;)
