Hard New Cana­dian An­des Climb

Gripped - - NEWS -

Quentin Lind­field Roberts and Alik Berg climbed a new alpine route on Chacraraju Este, a 6,001- me­tre peak in Peru, one of the most dif­fi­cult in the An­des. Af­ter their climb, Roberts noted, “We’re stoked. The Devil’s Reach Around took two days. Our as­cent was the fastest and f irst free-as­cent of the face at around M6 5.10 90 de­grees. Ev­ery sec­tion we thought was go­ing to stop us turned out to be pretty chill, and we had lots of siesta time on the way. Su­per rad line on qual­ity stone (mostly).”
