Professional climber (Patagonia) Matt Helliker went out on a mission in 2017. He was determined to top ‘Fisheye’ an 8c route in Oliana, Spain. I joined him for one day to capture his battle. And he won.

> To climb a route at your limit, everything has to be in your favor, the style, the length, and the conditions need to be perfect. “Fisheye” a 50m 8c in Oliana was a route that would suit my style, a full power endurance/endurance effort. < MATT HELLIKER

The pictures and story were published in Sidetracked Magazine, shared on several social media and used on the website of the climber. Matt is an athlete at Patagonia.
