Solo per vecchi guerrieri: new hard 8c/9a multipitch for Manolo

The times goes, but Mr. Maurizio Zanolla (aka Manolo) doesn't lose the taste for great exploits!

Manolo on Solo per vecchi guerrieri
ph: Walter Bellotto

Route details
South face (Italy)
Opened by: Manolo and Federico Gorda, summer 2006
Length: 150m
Facing: south
Difficulty: 8c/9a max; 7c/8a obbl --> 7c, 7b+, 8b, 8c/9a
Gears: equipped with bolts, you need 10 quickdraws and a
60m rope
This time he bolted and freed a new hard multipitch on the Vette Feltrine (Italy): 4 intense pitches (7c, 7b+, 8b, 8c/9a)!

He named it Solo per vecchi guerrieri (the translation is "only for old warriors").

The hardest pitch is more or less 300m from the ground and Manolo said that the grade should be 8c/9a waiting for confirmation.

The climbing is really technical, and the key pitch, the 4th, despite some good rests, requires excellent footwork and good finger power!
