Today we’ve got the second in our series about undercover crushers, climbers who are quietly pushing the limits but don’t always get the press attention their efforts deserve. Last time it was Brit Jacob Cook but on this week’s show we’re off to Spain to check in with slab climber extraordinaire Talo Martin. He’s based in La Pedriza in Spain and as well as establishing climbs up to 8b+ locally, he’s completed hard slab climbs around the World, including in Madagascar. We grabbed a word to find out why, when everyone else is focusing on the steep stuff, what keeps him coming back to slabs. Talo is sponsored by Wild Country and Red Chili. If you’d like to see more of him padding up desperate slabs, you can check out his vimeo by going to vimeo.com and searching for Talo Martin or go to: http://vimeo.com/user2562567 If Anyone Can Get You Excited For Slab Climbing, It's Talo Martin | EpicTV Climbing Daily, Ep. 396
