Motto: "For me, it's all about defying gravity. It proves that anything is achievable if you put your strength, focus and will into it."
Civilian climbing is hard enough as it is. A military climber is further burdened with weapons, ammo, communications gear, a laser-spotter and body armor. He also has the added problem of having to climb under enemy fire, usually in the dark or under unfavorable weather conditions. None of this fazes Albert Pine, who loves the challenge of a sheer rock face. If it's large, made of granite, and you can pound pitons into it, Pine can climb it. For all that, he easily switches gears and climbs into a jet backpack to battle COBRA forces in the sky when they launch an attack from the air.
The display stand for the 50th Anniversary release featured gold paint.
Albert "Alpine" Pine (version 5) was created using the arms and legs of Snow Job (v3) (2008) with a new head, torso, and waist.
