Athlete Profile: Erik Eisele

After shooting Erik climbing Diagonal earlier this month I hoped to get out for another day of shooting with him. Time passed and it didn't happen. So I put together the footage I shot that day. Enjoy.

very cool... a couple of observations:

1) "just hoping to survive..."

2) check out what looks like the feet coming off at about 1:48

Wow, great vid. That climb is on my top local “wants"... I love the 5.5 rock pitch in the summer and always thought it would be awesome in boots. What an amazing location for that upper pillar.

Erik’s a great ice climber, and while I watched 1:48 a couple times I didn’t see anything that looked sketched... of course... I didn’t see a lot of X position either ;)

“Just hoping to survive” Aren’t we all? Maybe a theatric statement but I think Erik’s pretty calculating...

Thanks for the comments, everyone. Erik seems to be a pretty cool dude. Nice of him to let us into his thoughts.

I've heard people saying they found his writing about climbing inspirational. I hadn't really thought of it as such (it's good, I like it, but I never necessarily felt inspired). But climbing today I came up to some thin ice on lead that had me worried. I knew I could climb it and it would be no big worry but I got that pit in my stomach that I'm sure everyone feels. That all too familiar fear crept in and I started to doubt myself. And at some point I remembered something Erik wrote somewhere: "Launch." I did just that and everything was fine. Just one small remembrance brought my confidence back just a little and helped me through. Crazy. Enough rambling and thanks again. I'll make sure to post the results of new projects in the future for everyone to check out.
