MAD in Madagascar – Climbing with Sean Villanueva & Siebe Vanhee

In August 2015, Siebe Vanhee and Sean Villanueva took off on a climbing adventure in the Tsaranoro massif, in the south of the African island Madagascar.
They spotted a major unclimbed line on Tsaranoro Atsimo Armed with a drill, skyhooks and thirst for exploration we tackled the face ground up. This was very different to other first ascents they had done, as they usually do not bring a power drill, and very rarely place a bolt. But these walls are so blank and deprived of cracks and other features to place natural protections. Going ground up into this unknown vertical ocean of granite was very exciting and gave them quite the challenge. This video shows their adventure.
