Video: Outstanding new multi-pitch climbing in China

As we’ve previously mentioned, in 2011 Petzl sponsored “RocTrip China 2011″, an event where a group of climbers from the East and West put up more than 250 new multi- and single pitch routes in the Gétù Valley in southwest China.  The list of climbers includes Chris Sharma, Sasha DiGiulian, Lynn Hill, Dani Andrada, Daila Ojeda, Dave Graham, Emily Harrington, Enzo Oddo, Joe Kinder, Ethan Pringle and many others.  The video footage from this epic trip has finally been edited into a wonderful short film that highlights the scenery and culture of China, brief interviews with the climbers, and, of course, the climbing.  This one is really special, enjoy!


Here’s a a slideshow of photos from the event via Petzl’s Flickr:
