Petzl RocTrip: Out of the Rain and into the Great Arch

As the official beginning of Petz RocTrip neared, the great arch remained on Tuesday, October 24, the venue of choice for most of the Petzl Team athletes. A cluster of routes ranging from 8b (5.13d) to 9a (5.14d) on the left-hand side of the arch drew the most attention. Here, Sasha DiGiulian, Nina Caprez, Jon Cardwell, Dave Graham, Chris Sharma, Emily Harrington, Enzo Oddo, and others took turns working out the technical moves on slopey, rice bowl-shaped holds.

After spending two days climbing in the gigantic stalactite-filled El Chonta cave, the Petzl team took a rest day. They headed to downtown Taxco, navigating narrow, steep, and winding cobblestone roads in vans and busses. Starting at Taxco’s famous Santa Priscilla cathedral, with ornate stone and wood carvings, they toured the streets, full of vintage Volkswagen Beetles. The colonial town, a series of box-like buildings stacked on the the side of a valley and watched over by a stone statue of Jesus, is famous for its silver trade, attracting tourist from around the world.
