Todd Skinner was a world renowned rock climber. His climbing achievements included the first free ascents of many routes around the world. 13 years ago Skinner died in a climbing accident on El Capitan. When StoryCorps came to Jackson last summer Mattie Sheafor sat down with Todd’s widow Amy Skinner to discuss his death and why they keep rock climbing.
