The Leather pants wearing brothers who speed climb el-cap. Can't remember their names.

That would be the Hubers, sport hard enough that it took 10 years or so before ondra repeated them, first ascents on baffin 5.14 free solo's alpine shizz that'll chill your bones and their balls are easy to cup because of high viz leather pants.

Renato cassarato

Soloing stuff in the 70's, and 80's that would make most climbers heads spin today. The Cassarato Pillar on Fitzroy is named after him. He died attempting to solo the Magic Line on K2 in 1986 if I'm not mistaken.

Yeah, those tools. *swoon* I wonder what kind of conditioner they use.
