Wild routes in Patagonia
In 2012, for the 10th anniversary of the Petzl RocTrip, we head to the Piedra Parada site in Argentina. In this wild and arid landscape, the singular 200-meter monolith and meandering La Buitrera Canyon have seduced our route-finders.
As every year since 2002, the Petzl RocTrip is an opportunity to come together for a shared passion in a friendly atmosphere.

A new area in a hidden cave
The route-setting team from the Millau Petzl RocTrip had spotted an exceptional not yet developed cave, a hidden sink-hole in a corner of the island of Kalymnos. One of the Dodecanese islands, this small island is becoming a major international climbing destination. Laurent Triay describes "a gaping hole in the hill, exposing columns and other gigantic formations..." Arriving by boat at the Sikati sector is the high point of the Petzl RocTrip in Kalymnos, offering glimpses of this incredible sport climbing environment.

In the Dourbie Valley, never-ending limestone walls
A return to Boffi, the birthplace of the RocTrip... Many new routes are put up around the sector that had welcomed the very first edition. There are of course new ultimate routes, but the competitive aspect is less and less at the forefront. Everything is done to welcome both pros and amateurs in the same space, with over sixty new routes of all grades.
