Talo Martín in La Pedriza, Spain


Talo Martín talks about climbing La Fábrica de Ninjas (5.12d) at the slab-happy granite cliffs of La Pedriza, Spain: "As in a lot of granite, slab climbing makes up about 60 percent of the climbing style, and this is my specialty! However, often at Pedriza the north faces are full of crimps, but this particular one isn't, and this line follows an unlogical line with compression mantles, 'rock hams,' and slab moves."
