On May 20, 2019, the Spaniard Edu Marin managed the first free ascent of the longest roof route in the world: Valhalla. The film of the same name “Valhalla - Cielo de Roca” shows the story behind the impressive route in Getu, China. The film will be shown for the first time on October 2, 2020

The multi-pitch route Valhalla is one of the most difficult tours in the world. The 14 pitches include one 9a +, two 8c + and ten lengths in the eighth French degree. The most difficult length involves a completely overhanging crack.
