Catherine Destivelle Rope Soloing El Matador of Devil’s Towers

Every once in a while, we have to step away from the videos of today and feature classics, like this ridiculous footage of legendary French climber Catherine Destivelle rope soloing—and then completely untying mid-way up—the classic 130-foot El Matador (5.10d) of Devil’s Tower, Wyoming. If you enjoy watching super radical female climbers crushing in amazing retro outfits, then prepare to be stoked. This is too fucking cool.
