On today's Climbing Daily, we catch up with Slovakian climbers Vlado Linek and Martin Krasnansky and talk about their recent Patagonian big wall first ascent. The pair, along with fellow Slovakian climber Josef Kristoffy, put up the massive 700m 8b El Condor Pasa on Cerro Trinidad Central in the Cochamo valley, Chile. Using a mix of aid and free climbing, the trio reached the summit on January 14, before returning to free the remaining aid pitches.
Then, we bring you this week's product of the week: the Tenaya Iati. Check it out on the EpicTV Shop here.
