Sad question, but what axes is he using?

The axes are the new Ergos. Not sure when they are to be released but they are ridiculously aggressive

Completly blown away, nice route and great image from above the climber. I've climbed Mont Blanc du Tacul yet that mist be an extreme line on the Brenva face?
Good show!

The measure of a good climbing photo is when it induces vertigo in a climber! Makes my shoulders shudder!

Is he wearing Scarpa Phantoms? Looks like the 6000's
