The Mile High Challenge pits adventurous students with the task of climbing the equivalent distance of a mile up our rock climbing wall over the course of the quarter, (that's about 155 routes in three months), those who manage to reach this goal get a T-Shirt. This is the design for that T-Shirt. The only guideline I was given was, "Make it hip."
The anchor of my design is the hand, worn down and taped up from the 5280 feet of plastic it endured to get here, desperately grasping for one final, triumphant top out. A rough interpretation of Yosemite Valley surround the wrist as a symbol of the past; where free climbing as we know it today was born, as well as a representation of the future; future challenges and the victories and failures which they accompany.
