Also From Dirt...for Elias!
Another historic 8C on Chironico’s granite09 November 2021
The italian climber sends another of the most iconic lines in the world!
From week to week, boulder after boulder, Elias Iagnemma's hunger for hard ascents seems to have no end!
We left him at the end of October between Valle Ellero and Gaby, where he got the third ascent of Ziqqurat, to find him now in Ticino and in particular in Chironico.
Here, Elias needed only three sessions, two of which last winter, to climb one of the iconic boulder of both the area and the whole of Switzerland: From Dirt Grows The Flowers.
It was in 2005 when Dave Graham first sent this 8C line, destined to become one of the references of the grade in this case as well, and since then many top climbers have fought with it to get a repeat.
A further result that demonstrates how Iagnemma has reached a truly incredible level, which can compete with the world top and which can still reserve many surprises.
And if he is still in Ticino, with all the extreme lines waiting there, it is very likely that we will hear from him soon again...
