Pirmin Bertle climbs Ruta de Cobre, new 9a in Chile

di

The video of German climber Pirmin Bertle who at Socaire in the Atacama desert in Chile made the first ascent of 'Ruta de Cobre', a sports climb he has graded 9a.



After his extended trip to Patagonia with his young family in 2016, 32-year-old German climber Pirmin Bertle has now returned to South America where, at Socaire on the high altitude plateau of the Atacama desert in Chile he has made the first ascent of Ruta de Cobre. This is Bertle’s second 9a in South America after Azul es el cielo de los ciegos at Piedra Parada in Argentina, and probably the third 9a on the content after Alexander Megos established Pasito a Pasito in Valle de los Condores in Chile last March. It’s worth noting that Socaire is located at an altitude of 3600m.
