We have just received news that Rainbow Jambaia, the Venezuelan super route that free climbs the direct route on Angel Falls has been repeated. Arnaud Petit has been in touch with John Arran (one of the first Ascensionist) who relayed the following comments to us:The second ascent was made by a mainly French team comprised of Stéphanie Bodet, Arnaud Petit, Nicolas Kalisz, Igor Martinez (Venezuela), Toni Arbones (Spain) and Evrard Wendenbaum (video).It sounded like they loved the place and had a fine adventure following the route in much the same style as the first ascent. Arnaud and Nicolas between them led all of the hardest pitches, although Toni and Stéphanie shared the leading too. Of the nine pitches originally graded E7 they onsighted three, found an easier variant to one other, and climbed the rest within a few tries after work (leaving gear in place as we did). They also thought two other pitches to be of comparable difficulty. The team added two further bolts to bivy ledges but were keen to maintain the adventurous spirit of the route by using only removable gear to protect the climbing (including a few pegs placed on lead). The climb took fifteen days in all, with twelve nights on the wall. Arnaud said (translated from French) ?It was a great adventure, intense and serious.? John Arran added, ?I?m really glad it?s been repeated without changing its unique and challenging character. Congratulations and respect to the team.? Arnaud on Pitch 21.
