Toy Boy 8A (+) by Martina De Preto

19 April 2022

Martina De Preto has, in just two sessions, done Toy Boy 8A (+) in Val di Mello. "It is a classic crimpy boulder of Val di Mello. A perfectly beautiful and exciting line that mixes finger strength, resistance and power. It was time, I wanted and dreamed to test myself with this grade, and I knew I had the skills to do it, but there was never an opportunity. One week ago my time finally came. Just saying that I am happy is not enough, because behind it there is so much more, work, training, sacrifices, motivation, perseverance, and desire to achieve a goal. The right sentence is to never give up.

What are your 2022 plans and ambition?
I'm both an indoor and outdoor climber, but because of university (I am studying Energetic Engineering at Politecnico of Milano) mostly indoor. So my goals for 2022 are: make a good job in Lead European Cup and maybe take part in a Lead World Cup, never say never; also, outdoor, I want to send an 8b Lead, I have never tried one and do other 8A Boulder. That's it."
