Big Wall Climbing up Historic Routes in the Alps

Generally a great video, but a little longer than those I generally feature. These guys climbed a bunch of legendary routes in the same style that they were originally down, full approaches and always climbing from the ground up. The narration is a bit over the top at times, but I think you'll generally enjoy it. I really enjoy the connection shown across generations throughout and particularly at the end.

There are some crazy monos (single finger holds) during the first climb, watch out for them. Also pay attention at 5:00 for the old school piton clip. The limestone on that second route looks spectacular.
