Baba Yaga 9a FA by Giuliano Cameroni

Thursday, 12 November

Giuliano Cameroni has done the FA of Baba Yaga 9a in Val Bavona. "Took me one session to clean and bolt the route. The process was crazy because the first days I tried and thought it was going to be at least 9b. Then, on day five, first day of good conditions, I moved way better and understood that it was more a question of friction than a question of power. So I waited for good conditions and was able to climb it the next session. This winter I m planning on climbing in Ticino, trying everything I get psyched on, boulders, routes, first ascents or repeats!

The 23-year-old Swizz has during the last two years previously done two 8C+', eigth 8C' and one 9a, out of which six FAs. Add to that also 15 FAs 8B and 8B+ during the last year and it is easy to understand he is one of the more influential hardcore FA boulder in the world. Yet, he calls Baba Yaga, "Maybe my best FA so far." on Insta (c) Stefan Kuerzi
