27 Jun 3rd 8b for Tito Traversa (10)
Tito Traversa (10) sent yesterday his 3rd 8b: “Nuovi Aromi" in Erboristeria sector – Albenga, Italy.
Nuovi Aromi is a quite overhanging route, not extremely hard in the first part, then after a "rest", it suddenly rears up and at a bolt reaches the grade 8 and at the next , grade 8b, then up to chain with an easier part.
It was a real battle for the young Tito, as he could have sent the route fast enough, but an hold at the end of the crux had been broken, se he fell twice at the end of the crux and then had to change the beta.
The talented Tito had already sent on the same difficulty Criptonite at the roof of Sarre (Aosta Valley), 8b, which some climbers – like Alberto Gnerro that made it onsight – suggest as 8b/8b + and – in January, "Je est un autre ", sector Traduction in Castillon,
