Located in the heart of the Patagonian pampas, in Argentina’s Chubut province, Piedra Parada’s monolith rises up from the surrounding desert. Lying just to the north, the majestic La Buitrera Canyon was home to the Petzl RocTrip in November 2012. For more than a week, climbers from all over the world came together to share a common passion: climbing. Thanks to the hard work of a team of Argentinean and international route developers, La Buitrera Canyon, 5 km long with towering cliffs up to 200m high, is now one of Argentina’s major climbing spots. For the tenth edition of the Petzl RocTrip, more than 1500 people climbed in the wind, dust, heat, and cold, for an unforgettable Patagonian experience!
Chris Sharma and Adam Ondra spent two years working together to climb La Dura Dura (5.15c / 9b+), the world’s hardest climb. This film tells the story of their unique collaboration and shows Adam’s historic first ascent and Chris’ second ascent. Presented by prAna, Black Diamond, Sterling Rope, Evolv, Petzl, and Walltopia. With music by Build Buildings, Abel Okugawa, Okai, Animals on Wheels, Pascal Savy, and The Green Kingdom. For the full backstory on Chris, Adam, and the route, check out the original film, “La Dura Dura” available on the REEL ROCK 7 DVD and Download here:http://www.bigupproductions.com/films…
