While on a road trip to Colorado a few years back, Nicholas met Kaare Iverson, a photographer, who asked Nicholas to climb wearing shirts from his client so he could take photos. Three years later Nicholas found out Kaare had moved to San Rafael, CA where they reconnected and hatched a plan to climb in the Bugaboos. Their ten day climbing trip consisted of amazing weather, a beautiful campsite, meeting some amazing alpine athletes and climbing some of the classic routes in the Bugs.
