Mistero 9a by Giorgio Tomatis (17)

Wednesday, 24 June

Giorgio Tomatis, who did his first 8c+ in 2017 and who was #3 in the Euro Championships last year among the 16-year-old's, has done his second 9a, Mistero in Andonno.

”It was graded 8c but after the break nobody had been able to climb it in the last 20 years. Trying it, I broke another hold making the route even more difficult. It is a very intense route of 40 movements with an uncomfortable rest. I had a lot of fun trying it. It’s a very fun climb and it took me a month to close it.”
