Delusion of Grandeur 8A+ by Stasa Gejo

4 January 2022

Staša Gejo has done Delusion of grandeur (8A+) and The Arete With the Pocket (8A) in Chironico. "I planned to project the Dagger (8B+), spent one session on it and got very disappointed, so I wasn't keen to hike up to Cresciano, as my partner had nothing to do there and we spent only 4 climbing days. So we switched to Chironico.

Matthias really liked the Delusion of Grandeur and I tagged along. When we arrived, there were Italian and Austrian crushers, like Schenk, Piccoloruaz, Uznik and others. They worked the moves of it and did it super quickly. I tried a few sequences, but it was too crowded at the block, so I went to The Arete with the Pocket and did it in a few tries. In the next session, I worked on the moves with more devotion. Had a real scare at the mantle, took me a while to figure it out and trust my feet. I was too tired for a send as my projecting was inefficient. I sent it the next day. It was pretty tough for me, this boulder. But I am not very fit at the moment."
