Ian McEleney Completes Palisade Traverse in Winter

American Alpine Institute guide Ian McEleney and partner Jediah Porter recently completed the first full winter traverse of the Palisades in the easter Sierra. The Bishop Buzz, hosted by Skandar Reid, recently interviewed Ian and his partner about their adventure.


The Palisade Traverse makes its way along the Palisade Crest, which includes six 14,000' peaks and includes eight miles of climbing. Some say that there is up to 70,000 feet of climbing along the spine. So a full winter ascent is no joke, and we are very proud of Ian for this accomplishment!
