First 9a by Alfredo Webber (48)
  2017-10-10 00:00:00    
Andrea Gennari Daneri from Pareti Magazine reports that Alfredo Webber has done his first 9a, Thunder Ribes in Arco. Last year the 159 cam tall did his first 8c+ and he commented.

"I’m close to 50 years and now I work full time in a quarry, five days a week, 8 hrs a day. I wake up at 7am, breakfast, then 20 kms drive to the quarry. Back home at 6pm. Two days a week I have training on my wall at home. It’s a 1h 30’ work, basically long sequences, with intervals of some harder moves; then some hangs on crimps. When I’m projecting something hard for Sunday I have to rest on Friday and Saturday, otherwise I get weak. I’m less powerful than 20 years ago, but now I know myself better and I manage better my energies."
