Dean Potter died one year ago today. A week before his death, we had reached out to Dean to talk about his story in Alpinist 0, The Call, before republishing it online. He told us on May 11, 2015:

“Lately I've been missing the quiet wilderness of Argentina and have been feeling the pull to return to the simplicity of those windy peaks on the edge of the Southern Hemisphere. In 2002 I visited the smoking mountains of El Chaltén and entered into perhaps the most powerful flow state I've ever experienced. The Call describes this vague process. I don't understand it any better today than I did back then, but every moment I'm pursuing my arts is an attempt to further the deepness of these elevated states.”
