In early April America’s Alex Honnold and Brazil’s Felipe Camargo repeated Corazón de Ensueño, the stunning 8-pitch sport climb put up by Dani Andrada through the immense limestone Great Arch at Getu in China in 2011.
Honnold and Camargo spent a total of five days cleaning and working the line that the Spaniard had established - often alone - during the Petzl RocTrip and sent on the last day belayed by Chris Sharma. Camargo made the second ascent and, two days later, Honnold made the third, commenting at the time that the climb was "one of the most impressive long routes I've ever seen."
