Watch Edu Marin send the fifth pitch of Valhalla in Getu, China, which he’s dubbed Odyn’s Crack (5.15a/9a+). The full, monster route ascends one side of Getu Arch, climbs across the roof for ~250 meters, and then tops out on the other side of the arch. In total, it’s about 400 meters and 14 pitches, which go at:

  1. 7b+/5.12c
  2. 7a/5.11d
  3. 8a+/5.13c
  4. 7c+/5.13a
  5. 9a+/5.15a
  6. 8b+/5.14a
  7. 8a/5.13b
  8. 8c+/5.14c
  9. 8a+/5.13c
  10. 8b/5.13d
  11. 8a+/5.13c
  12. 8c+/5.14c
  13. 8a+/5.13c
  14. 8a+/5.13c

Marin bolted the line ground-up. Now, with the crux pitch complete, the redpoint is in sight. Marin wrote on Youtube:
