Petzl RocTrip 2011 Comes to an End With an Eight Pitch 5.14b from Andrada

The 2011 Petzl RocTrip came to an end last weekend with Spanish climber Dani Andrada busting out an eight pitch 5.14b, catching a belay from Chris Sharma. Andrada is calling the route Corazon de Ensueno (Heart of Dreams) and had the following to say in an interview with Petzl,

“This is definitely the best climb I have ever created. It’s hard, long, and so unique. After 4 pitches you find yourself in the ceiling of the arch, the belay station is actually a 10-meter wide suspended cave! And the following pitch is pretty unique – sort of like downclimbing 8b+. It’s totally “inhumane”.

 

Corazon de Ensueno climbs the Getu Arch in the Getu Valley of China and links several pitches of 5.13 climbing with a pitch of 5.11 and two pitches of 5.14. Here is a video of Andrada pulling off one arm pinky pullups in case you thought it was easy to climb an eight pitch 4.15…
