Dean Potter is one of the extreme climbers who climbs the peaks of Yosemite National Park in California without the use of any mountaineering tools, several news sites reported on Thursday.

According to reports, they are called “free-climbers.” They were said to defy death and gravity using only their own “chalked-hands-on-rock agility.”

The National Geographic Magazine will have a full story of these “free climbers” in their May issue. Featured below are some pictures of the extreme climbers from the magazine. Click the page numbers below to view more images.
