Video: Edu Marin frees all pitches in "Walhalla" (9a+)

Edu Marin did it. He prepared the world hardest multipitch route and could just climb all 8 pitches, one of the probably longest and most impressive roof line in the world after 50 days, spread over several months, work in the route. The route is 380 meters long and leads up to the lip of the roof through the roof in 150 metres above the ground. His father, Novato and his brother Alex were help him by his work and climb. The route in a amazing Rock Arch is located near by Getu in Shaanxi Province in the people’s Republic of China. With ‘Walhalla’ may ask new world after the hardest big wall route and in the moment the hardest route in China. It is the first multipitch-route for which the grade 9a+ proposed.

Edu by Instagram: “We, Alex and I, didn’t know whether or not setting up a line through this roof to free climbing it afterwards was possible. Everything was unknown and there was only a way to find out… This is the result of months of hard work, setting up the line, climbing and trying to find to design the most logical, beautiful and natural line. Now, Valhalla is a reality and I’m totally in on the process of free climbing it with the best team.”
