Emily Harrington on RocTrip China

We are all back home now after the Petzl Roc Trip in the Getu Valley.  There’s a lot to say about our experiences there. Almost too many overwhelming thoughts, memories, and emotions come to mind simultaneously, and it's proving difficult to form it all into a cohesive story. One thing’s for sure, however: we went on an adventure I doubt any of us will forget.

Hailing from Alexandria, VA, Sasha picked up climbing 11 years ago, after her brother’s birthday party, when she was just 7 years old.

Itw: Enzo Oddo, 15 years old, first 9a+

Enzo is the youngest member of our team of climbers. The fifteen-year-old from Nice has already sent several 9a+ routes. This summer, on the 15th of August, he achieved his greatest success with the mythical "Biographie 9+" at Ceuse.

 

We had the opportunity to meet with Enzo and ask him a few questions about his tick of the summer.
