This summer, Sasha DiGiulian and Edu Marin were looking to take on a big objective. They had their sights set on Zahir Plus, a 1,000 foot 5.14a in the Swiss Alps. What they found was a region inundated with rain. Zahir Plus had become a waterfall. They turned to prolific developer Dani Andrada for alternatives. He sent them to Sardinia to attempt Viaje de los Locos (The Madmen's Journey). Like Zahir Plus, Viaje de los Locos is a 1,000+ foot 5.14a, but it's more sustained, more committing, and scarier. The route is 7 pitches: two 5.12c, one 5.13a, one 5.13b, one 5.13c, one 5.13d, and one 5.14a. The duo succeeded and DiGiulian claimed the first female ascent on her very last day before she had to fly back to New York City and start her semester at Columbia. See the full story in the video above.
