Petzl Roc Trip in China - Nina Caprez

 
Petzl Roc Trip in China - Nina Caprez

Well well, it's high time to write about one of the best trip I've ever done in my life, the Petzl Roc Trip in Getu Valley.

In my eyes, it was a journey in an inconnu world. A world with another rhythm of life, time and people. Erwann Lelann transformed this lost place in China in a kind of a climbing paradise with a minimum of structure. Structure in China will never be the same as in Europe or America and for us foreigners, everything was just crazy and incredible.

 

The climbing live there was really easy and uncomplicated. Rice, cliffs all around in the whole valley and accessible by foot, rice, all different kind of rock and routes, rice, a lot of motivated climbers, rice, good partys and...rice?

The only thing I was missing was the blue sky and a glass of good redwine. But also without these two important factors, I was always super psyched and the climbing was like a game for me. I just wanted to climb as much as possible. First of all all the multipitch routes in the big arch, then the short and physical sportclimbing routes also in the arch, the crimper lines in Banyana's cave and the boulderstyle routes in Buddha's cave.

10 day's in Getu, a lot of climbing, performances and allez-allez, but also a meeting during day and night with my friends from all around the world. Sharing with them all these crazy situations, crazy ambiances and crazy.....ah, everything was so simple.

More photos are coming soon from Sam Bié and Beau Kahler...

A special thank's once more to all the Petzl Crew. The creation of an event like this is just incredible...
