Over the years, Skiy has logged hundreds of days ice and mixed climbing up to M9, and WI6.  He authored a new route (Illusions of the Raven), which scales 1500 meters on the infamous East Face of the Moose’s Tooth Alaska.  He also made an impressive second winter ascent of the fabled Greenwood/Lock on the N. Face of Mt. Temple in Canada.  In 2011 he traveled to Pakistan and spent 25 days on the East Face of the Great Trango Tower attempting to repeat the Norwegian Pillar 6c, A4 1500 meters.

Skiy spent 4 summers as an integral member of the prestigious Yosemite Valley Search and Rescue team.  While living at Camp 4 in Yosemite, he has been transformed into a granite climbing machine.  With 30 El Cap routes under his belt, to include 5 El Cap speed records and the ability to free climb 5.12 trad and A5. On October 3, 2014, he climbed the 16-pitch A4 El Capitan testpiece Zenyatta Mondatta, shaving several hours off the speed record.

Given his unique background of climbing and mountaineering, Skiy feels ready to put it all together on the biggest, unclimbed lines in the world!

  1. If Skiy is the son of Kaye Brocke then I have known him since age 14 and taught him to drive. I have followed his career with interest, especially as a PJ! He is a remarkable human being
