8C for Elias Iagnemma in South Africa - Up-Climbing

8C for Elias Iagnemma in South Africa

The italian boulderer climbs one the most iconic lines in Rocklands


A flash news that can’t be more flash! The only information we have comes in fact from an Instagram story in which Elias Iagnemma reports the ascent of Monkey Wedding, a mythical line of Rocklands that bears the even more mythical signature of Fred Nicole, who climb it in 2002 proposing the 8C. One of the most popular problems for top climbers and therefore also an attraction for Elias, who arrived there about a week ago.

With this ascent, he inaugurates also the hot season of Rocklands, deserted for a couple of years due to the restrictions of Covid, but which this year will most likely be besieged by half the world of climbing.

A few days ago, Iagnemma also climbed another famous passage of the area, the 8B of Sky, of which he reported the video on his Instagram profile.

While waiting to find out more, many congratulations to this italian boulderer from Abruzzo, who certainly has many other extreme projects for his trip in the other hemisphere!
