Description

Zembrocal - Back to Reunion Island

From America, England, France, Italy and Japan. From each corner of the earth, five climbers – Sam Elias, James Pearson, Caroline Ciavaldini, Jacopo Larcher and Yuji Hirayama – attempt to open a new multi-pitch route on the basalt island of Reunion.

Lost in the South Indian Ocean, Reunion is the childhood home of Caroline and, after traveling the world for several years as a professional climber, returning was something she had to do. By working together as climbers and friends, the team is able to open, ground-up, one of the hardest multi-pitch rock climbs in the world.

All pitches are freed, including the now famous fifth pitch at 8c – freed by Yuji on the last day of the trip, and through all the adventure, Caroline re-discovers the magic of a place long forgotten. The name Zembrocal refers to a famous Creole dish made from mixed varied ingredients that still maintain their original identities.
