Trofeo dell'Adriatico 9a+ by Gio Placci

26 November 2022

Gio Placci, who did his first 9a+ three weeks ago, has done Trofeo dell'Adriatico (9a+) in Arco, after projecting it for only six days. "What a line !!!! With the kneebar it’s consistently easier, 9a+ low ends IMO. Gabri (Moroni) who made the FA did it without the kneebar rest and so the route was definitely way harder maybe 9a+\b."

What are your winter plans?
I’m training now for the season 2023 but I still have a ten days trip to Spain over the new year, where I would like to climb First Ley (9a+).
