Pure Dreaming plus 9a (+) by Andrea Chelleris (13)

5 November 2022

Andrea Chelleris has done Pure Dreaming plus (9a+) in Arco. Last year, at age 12, he did Puro Dreaming (8c+/9a) and this year he needed eight more days to do the full link-up. In 2021, he also onsighted his first 8a+.

What is next?
I want to onsight an 8b and to find a new project in Arco.

Have you been close to an 8b OS?
Yes, two times, but I no longer had the opportunity to climb onsight because I started skiing and I preferred to send the routes that I tried in September.

How long do you travel for skiing and climbing and which sport do you like the most?
Ski from 2.5 to 5 hours, depending on the glacier. I climb in Arco and sometimes in Misja pec so from 2 hours to 5 hours. I like both and for now, I practice them alternatively so I can prepare for competitions. This summer I was able to climb a lot because the glaciers were closed due to lack of snow and maybe I feel less fit in skiing.

How much do you normally climb/ski nowadays and during the winter?
I ski every weekend and I climb the other days of the week. During the winter, I only ski but this year I'm doing online schooling so maybe I have time to climb.
