Martin Krpan 9a by Andrea Chelleris (13)

22 September 2022

Andrea Chelleris, who did Puro Dreaming 8c+/9a last July, has done Martin Krpan (9a) in Osp/Misja Pec. The 13-year-old is an Italian champion in both slalom and bouldering.

How has your summer been?
On the first days of June, I went skiing for the Blizzard meeting so I took the opportunity to climb for a week in France. I tried San ku kai (8c+) and I liked it very much because it is a technical route with a lot of particular heel hooks. I had a good feeling so after the national championships in Arco I came back and did it. Before the second trip in France I did Intermono (8c) near my home. When I came back I did 5th Avenue 8b+ on my 3rd go in Landro and Elefant Man (8b+) on my 5th go. After that I did Il sicario sanguinario (8c) in Baratro.

Do you have any plans for the autumn?
In October, I probably will go to Saint Léger to climb onsight. I also want go to Arco to try Reini's Vibes (8c) and to find a new project in Osp/Misja Pec before I start the ski season.
