Black Diamond Rock & Ice Session

Our session partner Black Diamond exists at the very heart of alpinism, and their Rock & Ice Session showcases the best stories and climbing pioneers from around the world.

The ever-psyched Matt Helliker gives us full insight into his recent exploits, both in the mountains and on the sea cliffs and slabs, including his recent success on The Big Issue (E9).

Plus a chance to hear from "Chamonix's Underground Badass", "Soft-spoken Italian, hard-charging climber", “The best climber you've never heard of", and 'Alpine hotshot"; all quotes used to describe Corrado 'Korra' Pesce, the Chamonix-based alpinist whose hard repeats and bold new routes in the Alps and Patagonia have created plenty of noise. Born in Novara but living in Chamonix since 2004, hardly anyone knows him in Italy and even Planetmountain mistakenly reported him as being French... Korra is one of the most active climbers in the Mont Blanc massif today.
