Ryan Gajewski works for Trango and can place a Big Bro lefthanded behind his head on a snowy moonless night while quoting Kierkegaard by memory in the original German. He firmly believes that chalk, sticky rubber and SLCD’s are aid. One time he drop-kicked a watermelon off the top of Half Dome just to see what would happen. According to Camp 4 legend, Aleks Zebastian caught it in midair and sawllowed it whole, rind and all.
