The first challenge of Epic Climber is a doozy - a 150 metre multi-pitch named 'Le Concile De Pierre.' The route climbs the Balme Wall, an impressive limestone face capped at half-height by a blank, horizontal roof. The crux pitch through the roof has never been free climbed, but is estimated to weigh in around 8c/5.14b. Tommy Caldwell teams up with Emily Harrington while Alex Megos partners with Hazel Findlay and both teams set to work. With four different styles, an unknown route, and a lot of dirty, questionable rock on the crux, it's going to be quite the day.

Can't get over how smooth Emily Harrington is on the wall. She's got such good rhythm when she climbs. Oh, and uh, Tommy wasn't bad either ;).
