Getting up GetuVideo

In April this year, Alex Honnold and Felipe Camargo repeated Dani Andrada's Corazón de Ensueño, a 240m/8 pitch 8c sport climb in Great Arch in the Getu valley, China.

Dani established the route during the 2011 Petzl RocTrip and it has remained unrepeated since. Felipe and Alex could both make clean ascents.

Sure, 8c multi-pitch is hard, but it's not like Alex couldn't do it with a broken back...

For more about Alex Honnold, stay tuned for the podcast I recently made with him. Hopefully within a week.
