La Sportiva Strange Heroes: James Pearson

di

The series Strange Heroes by La Sportiva continues with British rock climber James Pearson.

For over a decade James Pearson has been one of Britain's leading climbers. He excells in bouldering (his is the first 8B boulder flash back in 2007), on sports climbs (up to 9a) and above all on trad climbs (read The Groove at Cratcliffe Tor, The Walk of Life at Dyer's Lookout and Le Voyage at Annot to name just three). In this episode of the La Sportiva Strange Heroes he talks about his passion, verging on the obsession, for the neverending game of climbing.
