"Climbing is my life and whether I’m feeling good or bad in the moment, I feel at home when I’m doing it!"
"I've been scared on a rope plenty of times, but if you're scared soloing, you're not doing it right.
You should go down."
BRAD GOBRIGHT VIDEOS
Dreefee is one of the hardest big wall routes (10 pitches) in Red Rock Canyons, just 30 minutes out of Las Vegas, Nevada, on a magnificent sandstone cliff known as Rainbow Wall. It was hardest multi-pitch route that Brad Gobright and Ben Hanna have ever done.
"Probably the raddest wall of them all is the Rainbow Wall, which located in the back of Juniper Canyon. There's this line that goes up the center known as Dreefee. Last year I took a nasty slip down the base, fell about 60', broke my ankle really bad. I had to crawl my way out of the canyon. It took me about 5 hours. It was probably one of the hardest things I've ever done. So I'm back this year for redemption!"
El Cap Triple
Brad Gobright and Scott Bennett became the third party to complete three El Cap routes in a single day, linking together Zodiac, the Nose, and Lurking Fear in 23 hours and 10 minutes.
“If I had to pick the spot where I was the most exhausted and scared it would probably be the steep crack pitches on Lurking Fear.”
Naked Edge Speed Record
Brad Gobright and Scott Bennett have set a new speed record on The Naked Edge (5.11), climbing the 460 foot route in a blistering 26 minutes and 16 seconds. Their climb was 15 seconds faster than the previous record set by Jason Wells and Stefan Griebel.
El Capitan 'Nose' Speed Record
On October 10, 2017, Brad Gobright and Jim Reynolds smashed The Nose Speed Record by shaving 4 minutes off the previous record set by Hans Florine and Alex Honnold. Gobright and Reynolds completed the 880m valley classic in 2 hours, 19 minutes and 44 seconds ( 2:19:44 )
" Jim and I work together really well. Jim isn't well known, but he's a dark horse. I led the first block, but Jim led the second, harder block and he got it done ."
Jim Reynolds co-record holder for the fastest time up The Nose.
