Behind the Rainbow, new route on Roraima Tepuis by Glowacz and Heuber

03.12.2010 by Planetmountain

German climbers Stefan Glowacz and Holger Heuber have established "Behind the Rainbow" (16 pitches, 8b), a new route on Roraima Tepuis, Venezuela

Just 10 days after setting off, Stefan Glowacz and Holger Heuber have already completed the new route up Roraima Tepuis, Venezuela, which they had initiated with the late Kurt Albert earlier this year.

The two Germans completed their 16 pitch route up the aptly named La Proa with difficulties up to 8b and have called the line "Behind the Rainbow". Glowacz stated afterwards "For me personally it's a perfect route. It becomes increasingly difficult the higher you get, each pitch has its own character and the setting is absolutely impressive. This adventure was unique."
