Carlo Traversi Takes On the Triple 14 Challenge — a 5.14, V14, and 14er in a Day

This latest film from Black Diamond documents talented all-around climber, Carlo Traversi on his attempt to complete the Triple 14 Challenge—an epic endurance day that involves climbing a V14, 5.14, and a 14er in a single day.

Carlo took to Colorado’s Rocky Mountain National Park to tackle the objective, where he elected to climb the notorious boulder problem, Jade, Tommy Caldwell’s high-elevation sport climbing testpiece, Sarchasm, and a big wall lap up the Diamond to reach the summit of Long’s Peak.

Not only does this require climbing some of the area’s most difficult climbs, but linking them entails over 20 miles of hiking and nearly 13,000 feet of vertical gain.

Can he pull it off? Watch to see the outcome of his arduous adventure.
