La Terza Via 9a FA by Pietro Radassao

27 July 2022

Pietro Radassao has done his second 9a FA, La Terza Via in Frosolone. In total, Pietro has put up more than 100 routes and surprisingly, none of his 8c+ and harder (6) have been repeated. Almost all his hardest routes have been established during the last four years when he started to train harder and more frequently. The 26-year-old lives a couple of hours south-east of Rome and has only four times been on climbing trips abroad. The last time was in Spain in 2018. (c) Constantin Esposit

"🌞 These days are hot, very hot even for Molise and so I thought "why not try the route early in the morning?". I woke up at 4 and we met at the crag at 6, and by 7 I was on the wall feeling good and I managed the first free ascent of this project! 🙏 It was bolted a couple of years ago by Giorgio Ferretti, whom I thank for having equipped a logical and natural line, as hard as it is beautiful. It has the first part in common with "Homo Vitruvianus" with which it shares the first boulder problem (8B/+ so far) and after a decent rest it continues on the left on a strong overhang where you have to face another 30 movements without rest (for me this part is not less than 8c). It took me much more effort than "Homo Vitruvianus" (8c+), despite being currently in better physical shape. I propose the grade of 9a, waiting for future repetitions that will certainly better define the difficulty of the line."
