Gabri Moroni repeats 29 dots in Valle dell'Orco

Probably the first repetition of this incredible highball opened by Bernd Zangerl

05 September 2017

Gabriele Moroni has a strong mind in addition to strong fingers and this a well-established matter of fact. In the last years indeed, we often followed his ascents, closer to free solos than to highballs. Also his last result is something that leaves us frozen and stuck to the screen while we look at the video posted in youtube.

On Sunday, Gabri indeed climbed the incredible 29 dots in Noasca, Valle dell'Orco, doing the first probable repetition after the first ascent in 2015 by Bernd Zangerl. 

14 meters of very sharp crimps, the crux when you are 7 meters high, a precise, elegant and technical climb described by Zangerl as "one of my most difficult ascents in that style", even if he did not propose any grade. 

An extraordinary exploit for Gabriele, on a masterpiece carved in the stone for which any number will never be able to quantify its values and the ability of its climbers.
