“Gondo crack” 8c est né ! – “Gondo crack” 8c is born !

  • 27/04/2017

Trad. Barbara Zangerl et Jacopo Larcher ont encore frappé dernièrement en Suisse sur la falaise de Cippo près de Gondo. Ils ont libéré une belle fissure équipée depuis 15 ans et qui restait à l’état de projet et vous vous en doutez, ils l’ont protégée avec des coinceurs !

Trad. Barbara Zangerl and Jacopo Larcher have freed “Gondo crack” 8c trad in Cippo, Switerland. Jacopo thoughts :
“Gondo Crack” is an obvious line at the “Cippo” crag  (Gondo, CH). It was bolted by A. Manini and M. Pellizzon almost 15 years ago and since them, it had been an open project. As its name says, it follows an obvious crack which you can also protect with trad gear. Maybe it’s not as safe as with bolts, but for us it made more sense to climb it in this way. We graded it 8c (or 5.14b R). The bolts are obviously still there, so you can choose the rules of the game you want to play. You should go and check it out: it’s really cool !”
