This week we’re bringing you a film featuring renowned free soloist, Matt Lloyd, whose mental and physical prowess are driven by his mind over matter approach to climbing. Hear how Matt prepares to tackle King of the Mountain; a 700-foot, seven pitch, 5.13 located in Empire, Colorado.

I think risk is inherent to making something real. Otherwise it sort of feels like it holds no value … Anything you’ve ever done that you feel satisfied about was probably hard work.
