Video for "Float" - a tribute to Todd Skinner

At the time we wrote "Float", Todd Skinner was a climbing hero to me. After getting to know his family, friends, and hometown, it became clear that Todd affected many people beyond the sport of climbing. As a person, he was just as much a hero as he was when freeing hard pitches on the biggest of walls. Sometimes, we as climbers, lose sight of that. This is my attempt at a reminder... filmed with Todds children in his hometown of Lander, Wyoming, and in my hometown of Cincinnati, Ohio.

Dedicated to the Skinner family, the Ratz family, the Absolon family, and the Lowe-Anker family.

Made possible by The Todd Skinner Foundation and Faded Orange.
