Felipe Camargo and Alex Honnold have made the second and third ascent of Dani Andrada’s eight-pitch Corazon de Ensueno 5.14 in China’s Getu Valley. After the ascent, Camargo wrote, “Alex Honnold belayed me! We worked on it for five days, cleaning the route cause it was really dirty and figuring out the moves and just working on the pitches.
Thanks so much to @_felipecamargo_ for supporting me on the 3rd ascent of Corazon de Ensueños (8 pitch 5.14b). He made the second ascent 2 days before but I just wasn't quite able that day. So he climbed the whole route again to support my attempt. I guess that what it's like to be maybe the strongest climber in South America. It's been such a good adventure climbing in Getu! This pic doesn't really do the position justice – we're over 200ft up on the underside of the great arch. But it's the best I could do while belaying… @thenorthface
“Later, we did it on our first serious push from the ground. Best thing I’ve ever climbed. A real gem from Dani Andrada. Incredible effort and vision bolting this thing.” Watch Andrada on the steep route during the 2011 Petzl RocTrip below.
