"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!"
