I've been working with the Petrala crew in getting a climbing film together, and wanted to do something with Michael. We had been concentrating on bouldering in Joshua Tree, CA when Michael mentioned a boulder that he thought might be a good one to shoot. It wasn't until we walked over to check out the rock (which happened to be the first ascent that he had ever done!) that I realized his idea of a "highball" was a bit different than ours! Michael calls it "The Devil Knows the Details," and even with gear it's a bold lead. As a solo, it's a classic all of it's own. A few months later, I wandered the desert with him as he soloed 1,000 routes in 30 days, but that's a story for another day.
