Life on the Vertical
Mark Synnott is one of the most prolific exploratory climbers of his generation. His travels have taken him on nearly 30 expeditions. Mark has gone to the far corners of the planet where he has had a seemingly endless series of epic adventures. Also a pioneering big wall climber, Synnott’s first ascents include some of the biggest cliffs in the world, like the northwest face of Pakistan’s Great Trango Tower. Additionally, Mark climbed the Polar Sun Spire in Baffin Island, a wall on which he and his partners spent 36 days living in a portaledge. Synnott is a long time member of The North Face “Dream Team”. Over the years he has had the privilege to climb extensively with legendary characters including the late Alex Lowe, Conrad Anker, Jimmy Chin and the wonder kid Alex Honnold.
Synnott’s climbing career has followed the arc of professional climbing from its birth in the mid 1990s to what it has become today. As a result, this puts him in a unique position to explore the subject of risk and to reflect on the old climbing proverb: “there are old climbers and there are bold climbers, but there are no old bold climbers.” Finally, a gifted communicator known for his wit and dry sense of humor, Synnott is widely regarded as one of the best story-tellers in the business.
