Watch Carlo Traversi Make the First Ascent of Empath (5.15a)

Get access to everything we publish when you sign up for Outside+.

To find the perfect line is a never-ending search. A quest that becomes meaningful only for the sake of the journey. But every now and then, if you continue looking, the chance of finding something truly spectacular becomes real. Carlo Traversi knows this feeling. He’s tasted this fruit and has touched this stone. In a chance of fate, he recently unearthed a marvel. This line contains all the emotions, holding within its granite a lifetime of empathy for a wandering seeker like Traversi. Perhaps that’s why this line, now a testament to the search, holds the name Empath. Watch Traversi establish what is now one of America’s prized 5.15’s.
