Part of this White Cordillera is extremely glaciated, while another section known as Cordillera Negra is completely free of snow. Overall, the result is a varied mountain world full of contrasts, one where the likes of Spanish alpinist Dani Moreno feel at home. Whether sport climbing up to 9a, ascending classic walls in the Dolomites or speed climbs like the one on the Sphinx:
Dani feels comfortable and safe in all terrains with the Terrex Series.

Two Spaniards, Dani Moreno and Eduard Marin Garcia, took a step outside their comfort zone and discovered new terrain in Peru.

They pulled off a team speed ascent on 5,000-m La Esfinge, in the Cordillera Blanca. Less than two hours to blast up 600 metres of vertical terrain! Read the full story inside. Dreams fulfilled, new terrain discovered, a speed ascent at the limit, all comes down to one core state of mind: “Unlock your terrain!”

Itatiaia is a Brazilian expression that means “rocks with many sharp edges”. Kevin and Ben arrived in an oasis for those thirsty for climbing. Boulders were everywhere with “never-ending potential”, as Ben described his first impression. Massive granite blocks with some bizarre shapes and interesting lines.

To try is to risk failure, but risk must be taken, because the greatest hazard of life is to risk nothing. The person risks nothing does nothing, has nothing, is nothing. He may avoid suffering or sorrow, but he simply cannot learn, feel, change, grow, live and love. (Leo Buscagia)
