On July 25, 2020, Siebe Vanhee managed to climb the multi-pitch route Orbayu (8c, 500m, 13SL). The North Face's film Orbayu Free Again has been available in full length on Actiontalk TV since yesterday.
Orbayu in the Picos de Europa National Park, Spain, is one of the most difficult multi-pitch tours in Europe, and indeed the world. The Basque brothers are responsible for the first free ascent Iker and Eneko Pou in the year 2009.
Originally rated 8c + / 9a, the grade of the most difficult pitch has now leveled off at 8c. Siebe Vanhee secured the fourth repetition of the route on July 25, 2020. A camera team from The North Face accompanied him.
We look forward to seeing you the movie Orbayu Free Again here Action Talk TV to be able to present.
