It's always an honor to be able to shoot for the Geographic. This story was the brainchild of my good friend Mark Synnott. As I've written about before, I’ve ended up in some wild places and some fairly crazy situations with Mark. This expedition was no different. Mark, Alex Honnold, Hazel Findlay, Mikey Schaefer, Renan Ozturk and I spent 3 weeks sailing around and exploring the Musandam Peninsula, located at the northern coast of Oman. We found an otherworldly landscape and some incredible climbing on the peninsula's knife edge seaside cliffs.
