Orbayu, the climbing Odyssey with Nina Caprez and Cédric Lachat
The film Orbayu featuring Swiss climbers Nina Caprez and Cédric Lachat and their attempts to repeat Orbayu (8c, 500m) up Naranjo de Bulnes, Picos de Europa, Spain.
On 9 July 2014 Switzerland's Cedric Lachat repeated Orbayu, the 500m 8c freed on Naranjo de Bulnes by Iker Pou and his brother Eneko in August 2009. During the same period Nina Caprez attempted to repeat the same route, renowned for being as tough mentally as it is physical. Caprez however still has some unfinished business in the Picos de Europa massif: while she managed to send each pitch individually, a single-push, one day ascent is still outstanding.
