Climbing Madagascar

ROAM with Sasha DiGiulian

Climbers Sasha DiGiulian and Edu Marin went to Madagascar to attempt one of the world’s most challenging big-walls climbs. The route, Mora Mora, had only been climbed once before (by prolific climber Adam Ondra). If successful, Sasha would make the first female ascent by climbing 2,300 feet—or 6.5 football fields of vertical rock—using granite holds the size of “shelled peanuts.” It took the duo three days to free climb the 12-pitch route rated 5.14b (8c), relying on protective gear only in the case of a fall, for the second ascent ever.
