The Torre Traverse has been repeated. In just one day.
On January 31, Alex Honnold and Colin Haley completed the second ascent of the legendary Torre Traverse in 20 hours, 40 minutes, smashing the previous ascent time by three days.
“Oh boy, how the times change,” Ronaldo Garibotti, who completed the first ascent of the Torre Traverse with Haley in 2008, wrote on PATAclimb.com. “This crazy sport moves forward in giant leaps… Yes, the Torre Traverse got climbed in a day! Seems like yesterday when it was a quixotic project that would never see the light of day.”
