5.14 in First Cave Sees First Ascent by Local Hardman Jeremy

2012 National Sport Climbing Champion Jeremy Hong has just completed the long standing project Long March(#259) located in the First Cave at Long Dong.

Continuously overhanging, the route has been rated at 5.14b, which makes it the hardest route at Long Dong. The previous most difficult route - Inimitable, was set at hard 5.13 by locals but was subsequently upgraded to 5.14a by Yuji Hirayama after repeating it.

With 30 meters of steep climbing there’s no question where the name came from. Check out the video of the send:
