VIDEO: Speed Climbing the Naked Edge

The Naked Edge is one of Colorado's most classic multipitch traditional routes. Located in Eldorado, this 6 pitch, 5.11b megaclassic was first climbed via aid in 1962 by Layton Kor and Bob Culp and later freed for the first time in 1971. The incredible, still stout testpiece remains of the most sought-after climbing ascents in the state.

This video shows Scott Bennett and Brad Gobright training to reclaim the speed ascent record of this line, which they had once held at 29:53.
