Patagonia ambassador, Blanchard tells his tale of transformation from a poor kid to one of the most respected alpinists in the world during the times of sex, drugs, and rock and roll. From his teenage years of climbing crags with nothing more than written trail descriptions to adventuring unexplored alpine areas.
