Really cool project.  I've been following on his FB which he updates for each climb he checks off the list.  He does some of the climbs alone which if it was anyone besides Davenport I'd say is pretty crazy.

Chris Davenport is an incredible guy on many levels.  

If anyone can do it, its him.

Mike, in your travels, have you had the good fortune to spend time with Chris? 

 

Phil and I have had opportunity and are always impressed with his presence.

Sweet. I can't wait to read more on the other links.

Unfortunately, TC, I've not had the opportunity to meet him.  He impresses me as someone of supreme competence in his mountaineering.  His skiing?  He seems to be a master, someone who knows his limits and is able to ski within himself.  Yet he has accomplished descents that no one else has.

 

It's a bit of a disappointment he hasn't made the Matchstick flick the last couple of years.  I always enjoyed his segments.  And yet his greatest achievements have seemed to be off-camera.

 

The webpage above gives a tiny clue of what an athlete he is.  On his way to Denver for a meeting, he stopped, bagged the East Face of Torrey's and Mount Edward and was back at the car in 4 hours.  I wouldn't make it to the top of Torrey's alone in that time.

Mike, Because he is so very humble, he inspires humility in a special way.

I hope you get to have a chat with him some day.  I think you'd really get a lot out of it.

Met him in Portillo last summer. Agree with all the kind words said above. Seemed very humble and approachable. I remember when I mentioned Epicski, he brought up Phil right away. Wish him luck with this impressive goal.

Chris is a real good guy and a great ambassador for the sport.

He has a permanent goggle tan and he climbs 14,000 ft peaks for his morning walks.  True badass.

And yet, when you go to a ski demo, he's turning wrenches in the Kastle Booth and helping you with your set up.  biggrin.gif

 

THAT's Bad Ass!

chris is my friend and I am glad you all think of him just as he is....cool, refined, nice, and what noone mentioned an amazing Father and Friend. He will finish. Christy and Ted (his partners) are also wonderful people. I believe they are done for this season, I hope they get done next season!
