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.
