Dreamcatcher 14d is one of the most iconic sport climbs in the world. It was first established by Chris Sharma in 2005. I have always wanted to go to Squamish BC to climb and check out this beautiful route.
This was my first time to see the route. I definitely planned on shooting it while I was in Squamish but wasn't sure if anyone would be working it. The time I went up to scout was about five minutes before this photo was taken – I was lucky enough to stumble upon Mike Foley making his final attempt.
I didn't really have time to get set up as well as I wanted, but the platform I was on was just about perfect without going through all the effort of setting up a static line to shoot from. I just held the camera as high as I could in live view mode to shoot. I knew there was a winner in the batch, the light was perfect, and Mike was a great climber to shoot, showing tons of energy and psych.
