Somethin Bout Nothin: Kelly Cordes on Alpinism

1 Min Read  /  Climbing

"The odds on very difficult alpine climbs are not in your favor. So there's no excuse to show up unprepared, to show up out of shape."

Climber, writer and Patagonia product tester Kelly Cordes takes us through his training strategy for alpine climbing and reflects on disaster style alpinism.

If you enjoyed this video, consider reading two of Kelly's field reports. "Tying In" is from the Great Trango Tower trip Kelly describes in the video. "Into the Rime" illuminates a more recent climb Kelly made in Patagonia.
