Valhalla – Edu Marín’s 9a (?) Roof Project in Getu, China
We get dizzy just watching this video...
Edu Marín’s wrote on YouTube of his efforts to free his newly bolted creation, “I had never before tried to [free] a [multi-pitch] of this caliber, to climb for hours on that roof … Sometimes I had the feeling that it never ended and that I was lost in a rock sky.
“I calculate that I have … to climb more than 250 meters of pure roof, an authentic madness. …
“It’s a crazy … 3D climb and of course extremely physical. It has several [pitches] of 8c [5.14b], 8c+ [5.14c] and a possible 9a [5.14d].
“I am very happy to have [bolted] this monster, a beautiful line, with a unique style, fun, futuristic, with quality rock and extremely difficult. I’m already preparing the next trip to try to climb free!!”
