The latest video from Black Diamond will have you thirsting for the Austrian Alps. Black Diamond follows one of its employees, Remco Graas, as he attempts a huge traverse of the mountain range just outside of Innsbruck.

From the Black Diamond office, Graas couldn’t help but look at the Nordkette Traverse and think, “I bet I could do the whole thing in one big day,” the video says.
