Tommy Caldwell and Alex Honnold: Fitz Roy traverse interview

Interview with Americans Tommy Caldwell and Alex Honnold who from 12 – 16 February 2014 carried out the coveted first traverse of the major ridge line of Fitz Roy in Patagonia.

This interview needs little introduction, it deals with two of the world’s most talented climbers, Tommy Caldwell and Alex Honnold, who recently completed a superb traverse in Patagonia. That of the crown of peaks surrounding Fitz Roy: Aguja Guillaumet, Aguja Mermoz, Cerro Fitz Roy, Aguja Poincenot, Aguja Rafael Juárez, Aguja Saint-Exúpery and Aguja de l’S. A journey that resulted in 4000 metres of vertical gain, simul-climbing almost all the way, mostly in approach shoes, with a mere 4 bivouacs.
