Photo shoot for Merrell at new multipitch route 'Lady Galaxy' 5.11b
New multi pitch route
'Lady Galaxy' 5.11b
Once again, a great new addition to the climbing scenery in Panama! Lady Galaxy 5.11b route. After many hours of hard work, my friend Christian and I finally completed this beautiful route which is located at Piedra de Lino, exactly to the right side of 'Cosmic Love' route. Lot of effort and love was put in the development and ascent of this line which resulted in a splendid 2 pitches lines at 1700 meters above sea level.
The route start with a narrow crack where hands and fingers have to be placed precisely, this section is followed by a technical traverse that represent the first crux, a nice long section of fun easy climbing continues until reaching the super exposed 2 meters overhang roof at the very top. This roof is definitely the hardest part of the entire route and movements there requires commitment, physical and mental strength as well as great technique. The new route is called 'Lady Galaxy' and it is rated 5.11b so far.
This is the official photo shoot and first ascent for Merrell brand. Hope you enjoy the pictures climbing 'Lady Galaxy'. Photo credits: Christian Schriefer. (Click images to enlarge).
