Brad Gobright

Brad Gobright was an American climber known for free solo climbing. Gobright was born in Orange County, California, and began climbing when he was six. He dropped out of college in 2009, working odd jobs during winter and climbing during the rest of the year. Gobright and Mason Earle made the first free ascent of The Heart Route on El Capitan in Yosemite National Park in 2015. In 2016, he and Scott Bennett climbed three routes on El Capitan in 24 hours – Zodiac, The Nose and Lurking Fear. In 2017, he and Jim Reynolds set a speed record of two hours 19 minutes and 44 seconds for The Nose on El Capitan. With Alex Honnold in June 2019, he made the second free ascent of El Niño on El Capitan in fourteen-and-a-half hours. On November 27, 2019, Gobright fell about 300 meters to his death on the El Sendero Luminoso climb at El Potrero Chico in Nuevo León, Mexico.
