Throwback to last climbing season when @cannonjtc and Fabi tried freeing the "PanAm" (5.12d). We had a great support team filming the action. We put fixed lines down the entire 1400 feet face, rappelled down, had an amazing bivy at the base to then fire the route the next day. In an effort of 8 hours we topped out. Jordan led the crux pitch – "brown dihedral" – a really stellar pitch with rather marginal gear. Eventually we had to girth hitch a smashed bolt and clip an old removable bolt to make this a safe one. After 3 redpoint attempts, Jordan decided to keep moving to not loose time. Fabi eventually followed without falling (and all pieces still clipped to the rope – no chance of sending otherwise ;) This place is truly adventurous and requires quite some preparation to properly navigate through. True adventure climbing in an amazing setting. Thanks mother nature for this one.And also special thanks to @kovacsan11 and @shepherdimagesllc for all the support – hauling bags, coiling ropes, eating mayonnaise and holding the camera. See you soon! ?? viva Mexico ??
