Mixed Climbing

I was very satisfied with this climb. Not because it is the hardest or most challenging that I have done but more because it was an “alpine” onsight, with a possible ground fall because of the distance between the three bolts on the route. And then the ice was very thin so it was not possible to place any ice screws… Last – it felt good!

Cima Grande de Lavaredo – Comici route (550m, ED-, VI, A0 UIAA)

 

This day developed in many different directions that were very unexpected. But in the end I climbed the route and got back to the van before darkness. My climbing partner got sick and bailed, I climbed solo and later I found a new friend.
