Zembrocal, the Réunion island video

di

The video documenting the first ascent of Zembrocal (140m, 8c+), put up by Caroline Ciavaldini, Sam Elias, Yuji Hirayama, Jacopo Larcher and James Pearson on Reunion island.

A return home. A new route up a hostile face. At times very poor rock. For some even the first time new routing ground-up. Theses are the ingredients that created Zembrocal, not the tasty local Creole dish, but the difficult 7-pitch climb on the Réunion island forged a stong team of climbers: Caroline Ciavaldini, Sam Elias, Yuji Hirayama, Jacopo Larcher and James Pearson.
