Marc-Andre Leclerc: The Man Who Soloed Cerro Torre

Marc-Andre Leclerc is a man who knows a thing or two about how to swing an ice axe.

During his time in Patagonia he has achieved some absolutely incredible climbs, capped off earlier this year with a solo climb of Cerro Torre.

No stranger to solo climbing, Marc-Andre has also racked up an impressive catalog of free solo ascents in his native Squamish as well as numerous other locations around the globe.

EpicTV caught up with Marc-Andre when he was taking a break from his climbing shoes and mountaineering boots at the Arc’teryx Alpine Academy.

Check out the video to hear him discuss his time in Patagonia, the Andes and how he got into climbing.
