Africa, Madagascar, Andringintra National Park, Mitsinjoarivio, East Face, Relief

Andringintra National Park, Mitsinjoarivio, east face, Relief. In July and August 2007 Pawel Wycislik, and I visited the Tsaranoro massif, where we repeated six established routes, one of these a redpoint ascent of the 1998 Piola-Robert route Le Crabe Aux Pinces d’Or (320m, 7b+) on the east face of Mitsin- joarvio. From July 25 on we worked on a new route immediately right of Le Crabe, completing it on August 7. Relief (380m of climbing, 7c+ one point of AO, 7b obl) has 10 pitches protected by 67 bolts. The first pitch is the crux.
