Two 9a's by Filip Schenk

Saturday, 6 June

Filip Schenk, has done two 9a's in Arco; Pure Dreaming and Underground. (c) Alessandro Larcher

The 20-year-old lives in the Dolomites and started to climb in the mountains around Val Gardena since he was six years old. During the last six years, he has won eleven Youth Cups/Championships including one World Championship in Bouldering.

"During the lockdown, I had quite good possibilities to train also on a climbing wall at my home so I was able to continue with my training.
