rom 25th to 29th of June.2008, the Natural Games put together the most impressive outdoor’ crazy athletes.
This fusion of four universes (Climbing, Kayaking, Biking & Paragliding) gathered for the first time all the people of the ride, climb and fun !
In rock climbing, the Men’ Ultimate Route has been linked in only two tries by the young Adam Ondra (15 years old !)
As usual, the Roctrip is a great moment for meeting people, exchanging, enjoying, performing.. and partying all night long !

Infinity lane – Petzl Roctrip 09

Infinity Lane is a something new we thought up for the 2009 Millau Natural Games. The two Ultimate Routes, located at the Cathédrale in the Gorges de la Jonte (Aveyron, France), are actually three-pitch sport lines that the participants have to link together into one long, single pitch. The grade is about 8a (90 meters) for the women and 8b+ (90 meters) for the men.
Climbers had four days to link the route. They weren’t allowed to work the moves – once a climber fell, she or he was lowered to the ground and had to start over from the beginning the next day.
Martina Cufar and Florence Pinet both onsighted the Women’s Ultimate Route… Dani Andrada and Mickaël Fuselier made it almost to the top before falling near the anchors on the men’s route. However it took Chris Sharma only one try to get to the top.
