For the Men' Ultimate Route, the 15 year-old star Adam Ondra sent the project [8c] in only two tries.
Dani Andrada did it as well the following day.
Climbing conditions were not ideal for the Women' Ultimate Route since it got early direct sun, so none of the women were able to link the route. However, Martina Cufar and Florence Pinet made great progress up to the bouldery section.
As in the past, the Petzl Roctrip is a great occasion to meet people, share, have fun, climb...and of course party into the night!
