The video of Talo Martin and Sean Villanueva slab climbing at La Pedriza in Spain.

La Pedriza in Spain is one of the world's premier destinations for slab climbing. Located about 1 hour north of Madrid, its rough granite actually offers all kinds of climbing, from short boulders to complex sports climbs, trad climbs, multi-pitches and even the odd aid climb. Above all though, La Pedrizia is home to some of the finest slab climbs, wherw holds are often little more than optical illusions. Watch Sean Villanueva blancing up some classics with local expert Talo Martin.
