Megalodonte 8C FA by Simone Tentori

Thursday, 22 April

Simone Tentori, who previously has done eigth 8B+', has done the FA of Megalodonte 8C in Val Masino. (c) Maximiliano Piazza

"What a journey!! The longest battle to date. So many days practising these moves till perfection. Hard connection of Crazy snake 8B into Snake's bite 8A+. (Both done last November). First of the grade for me and for the valley, so proud of this ascent. Thanks to my friends and all the people who kept the psych high!"

How many sessions did it take in total, including the 8B and the 8A+ links you did last November?
I climbed in Val Masino almost every weekend from November till April, so almost 6 months. But I climbed other stuff and I had to stop one month for the snow in December that covered the boulder and a skin injury that required 1 month to heal. So in total, it was not more than 20-25 sessions I would say.
