The climb was a training trip for Leo's 2009 expedition to Mount Asgard, dubbed 'The Asgard Project'. You can read more about his plans in this UKC Outdoor Industry News.
Commenting after the routes in Riglos, Leo said:
"Berghaus team mate, Carlos Suarez and I teamed up to climb together for the first time. After a couple of warm up days we simul-climbed and BASE jumped the ultra classics 'Zulu Demente' on La Vizera and 'Carnivalada' on El Pizon in 2 hours 37 minutes bar to bar (or pub to pub)!
'Zulu' 7a+, 260m took 45 minutes, in 2 pitches of simul-climbing with a 20 m rope. At the top we hastily donned our BASE rigs, composed our nerve and jumped together right from the top out of the climb. We landed right at the start of Carnivalada 7a+, 300 m and simul-climbed it in 1.10 in 3 pitches with another 20 m rope."
