Dean Potter - The Aerial Artist

Dean Potter - The Aerial Artist

Dean Potter was the leader of his generation of adventure climbers, making bold ascents in Yosemite, and taking the sport in new directions. Dean pushed the boundaries of high lining, and BASE jumping, and combined those disciplines with climbing to open up wild ideas of how to explore the vertical realm and the spaces around it. Dean lost his life in a wingsuit BASE flight in Yosemite, along with Graham Hunt in 2015.
