On today's show we catch up with Alexandra Schweikart to hear about her ascent of El Corazon, an epic 32-pitch 8a (5.13b) on El Capitan, Yosemite, that she climbed with her boyfriend Christopher Igel. The pair's ascent was somewhat of a rollercoaster, as they battled thunderstorms, a 3-day battle with the crux roof-pitch, as well as the harsh reality of having to spend 12 days on the wall with a significant other.
