"When Matt Lloyd called 3 Strings to let us know that he was making an attempt on The Lion (5.12X) in Eldorado Canyon, we knew we had to shoot it. It would be a one take shoot, real life in the moment style which we love. Over the years Matt has slowly been ticking off the many scary no-fall routes in Eldo, his talent and fear management is a rare quality. Thanks for the call Matt, we love ya and stay safe dude!"
A team led by climbers Chris Sharma, Mike Beck, and Kevin Bradburn is organizing a deep-water soloing competition in Park City, Utah, to be held in conjunction with the Outdoor Retailer trade show in early August. During the six-day event, climbers will free-solo routes capped by a 26-foot roof towering over a deep pool at Park City's Olympic Training Park. You fall, you splash.
