American Sasha DiGiulian and Spaniard Edu Marin repeat one of the world's heaviest multi-pitch rides. The route Mora Mora (12SL, 700m, 8c) is located on the island of Madagascar.
Mora Mora is a route on the Tsaranoro Atsimo massif of the island state of Madagascar. At least since the first free ascent of the route by Adam Ondra in September 2010, the route is known to a wider audience. The difficulties of the lengths are distributed as follows: 6a +, 6b, 7b, 7b +, 7b +, 7c + / 8a, 8b + / 8c, 6c +, 7a +, 7c +, 7b +, 4. So at least Adam Ondra originally stated the difficulties.
First female ascent and repetition by climbing couple
Yes, Sasha DiGiulian and Edu Marin are a few. So much for the Gossip. Now to the facts. The two traveled in July to Madagascar, where they wanted to secure the first repetition of the multi-pitcher tour. Upon their arrival in Madagascar, they realized that their Portaledge was not taking the same itinerary as they did. So, at the beginning of their stay, the two had to travel one and a half hours each day and 400 meters to check out the 8c length.
Successful redpoint ascent after starting difficulties
Maybe the cumbersome approach and the jumar were pure training and the key to success. On the 20. Juli 2017 succeeded in both the free conquest of all lengths. Sasha DiGiulian and Edu Marin are among the first repeaters of the route Mora Mora on Madagascar. Sasha DiGiulian is not one of those women who resist the term "First Female Ascent". Accordingly, their sponsor RedBull announces loudly that she has committed the route as the first woman free.
