If you didn't attend the showing of the documentary Valley Uprising last night, you missed the story of our very own Dean Caldwell climbing Yosemite's El Capitan in 1970. We don't know if one has to be crazy or immensely courageous to climb these very beautiful, vertical, and impressive granite walls.
Read Life Magaziene's article of Dean's drama.
Today, Dean has traded his climbing shoes for woodworking tools, as he creates inventive and practicle jewelry displays under the name Ear Nest. His product's design is so original, it earned him a patent.
Every weekend, you can find him in the 200 row at Portland Saturday Market in Waterfront Park.
After buying one of Dean's jewelry displays, head north in the 200 row and check out Mesman Images' (space 216) Photography and Digital paintings.
