Setting and Climbing A Ridiculous Route in China


This video shows Daniel Du Lac bolting a route in rural China. This route has all the elements of an amazing climb: multiple pitches on a big climb, a huge arch with a ridiculous roof. As he was setting his route he keeps talking about the Vertigo that he gets as he’s bolting the route. For an experienced climber, you have to know that that mean’s it’s a serious route. Plus, it’s not every day that a climber has to take a tiny little bamboo raft to get to the start of a route that he set.

However, my personal favorite part is when he is basically climbing stalactites.
