Unfrortunately this year I could't spend much time in my favourite italian crag. I climbed here just a few days between march and september but I managed to make three great first to sends:
- Happy MILF 8c/c+ in May. Bolted by Valerio Ballardini. I think this route is one of the best 8c's in Italy and defenitely in my top 5 8c's ever... perfect rock and various moves. Still unrepeated.
- Terminegro 8b in August. Last year I bolted a route just left to "Il Frutto del Diavolo". The rig climbs very well until a big hole at 3/4 of the length at about 8a+. After the big hole there is a very blank part which I'm still not sure it will go or not. So I decided to move left after the big hole and climb the top part of the route Mezza Negra. The result is a great and kind of logic line! Repeated by Valerio Ballardini.
- Team Compression 8c in September(actually a few hours ago :-D). Bolted by Giovanni Cozzio(L1) and Nicola de Angelis(L2). This rig climbs all the 8b/b+ "Disaffection for Compression" that finishes at about 2/3 of the wall. After the chain there is a good rest and you can logically link the pitch with the top parts of "Belzebù Climbing Team" or "Il Frutto del Diavolo". This time I managed to link it up with the first but the exit on "Il Frutto del Diavolo" will definitely take a +!...
