Empath 9a+ FA by Carlo Traversi

Saturday, 17 October

Carlo Traversi, who previously this year did his first 8C+ boulder, has done the FA of Empath 9a+ in Tahoe. It took him including bolting and cleaning some 15 days. (c) Mary Mecklenburg

" I bolted it last summer and started working on it. Made some goods links last fall. This year I prioritized this route above everything. Climbing on Creature (the 8C+) was training for it. Once the temperatures dropped last week I started giving redpoint tries. Fell off the top a few times but managed to finish it up this past Sunday. It is slightly overhung, about 20 meters tall. Granite tufas and slopers. No real rests. Very bouldery." More insight on his Insta.
