The route is located near the monastery of Sant Miquel del Fai, close to Barcelona and tackles a large overhanging wall of limestone that disappears behind a waterfall in springtime.
As well as onsighting four 8cs, Edu has redpointed many hard routes including an early repeat of the famous 9a+ La Rambla, Siurana back in 2006.
A few weeks after his recent onsight ascent of Pengim Penjam Edu went back on the route for a video by Namuss Films.
"The roughness of the onsight and its beautiful and spectacular location gave us the push to accompany Edu with the cameras three weeks after his ascent, on the 17th of June. We recorded a repeat ascent of the route so we could share it with all of you."
