StoneNudes with Dean Fidelman

Dean, "Bullwinkle" Fidelman has been a fixture in the Yosemite climbing scene for nearly forty years.  Through his black and white photographs he has documented several generations of Yosemite Climbers.  From the StoneMasters to the RockMonkeys Dean has been there to photograph Yosemite history being made.  In 1999 Dean began work on his "StoneNudes" project, one of the most unique Art projects the Climbing Community has ever scene.  Since then Dean has traveled around the country and the world photographing real rock climbers (both male and female) bouldering naked.  Dean believes that both the rock and the human body are sculptures, and that we look both beautiful and natural climbing.

Meru Eleven

After 4 months of non-stop rehab, training & body work I'm stuffing base-camp duffles for an early morning departure to the himalaya with Jimmy Chin & Conrad Anker. Big thanks to everyone for the support along the way and the understanding during the decision making process. Hopefully we will be updating the Meru Eleven FB page along the way.... Sincerely, ~reo
