Carlo Traversi has been an inspiration to a lot of climbers from bouldering V14 to climbing 5.14 on multi-pitch walls. Check out this amazing film I Directed and shot with the help of Nelson Carayannis, Cameron Maier Dan Gambino and Ian Glass documenting Traversi trying his ultimate challenge—to climb a V14, 5.14, and a 14er in one day: A feat that has never been accomplished.
The perspective of difficulty is forever changing. With new ascents, new feats of strengths and new discoveries constantly raising the bar, a climber’s perception of what’s possible is always shifting. But perhaps the greatest proponent behind the ever-evolving standards of what’s truly challenging lies within one simple act … that of giving it a darn good try.
