Madagascar Big Wall:
fast on-sights and serious runouts
It should be mentioned that the majority of the pitches on all these routes are over 7a and on many 30-meter sections the first ascentionists used just 4 (sometimes even only 2) bolts, even though natural protection wasn’t possible. The granite in the Tsaranoro massif requires delicate technical climbing on tiny and often breaking off holds.
The team Kaszlikowski and Hourcode repeated Life In the Fairy Tale 7a 500m RP, Le Crabe aux Pinces d’Or, Out of Africa OS, Rain Boto (without the last pitch) and some other easier routes. Also John and Anne Arran redpointed Gondwanaland (with a bivy) and Gareth Parry and Jerry Gore team climbed it in AF style.
