19 Jul 5th 8b for Tito Traversa (10)
Tito Traversa (10 years) has sent today his 5th 8b, "La rimbambita" in the cliff "The rocchette" near Castelnuovo Garfagnan (Tuscany).
This a short route, two boulders with a rest in the middle, and so very hard moves especially in the upper part. The route has only 5 repetitions and by almost all climbers was graded 8b.
Tito had already worked La Rimbambita a week ago, but unfortunately the long move in the easy part prevented him from sending the route, though he had solved the difficult section up to the chain, starting from the hold that he could not take (due to his reduced height …) in the first boulder.
Today, the redpoint and the 6th repeat of the route!
The young climber had already done on the same difficulty Criptonite at the roof of Sarre (Aosta Valley) which some climbers suggest as 8b/8b+ and in January "Je est un autre ", sector Traduction in Castillon, then Nuovi Aromi and "Pepper Life" in Erboristeria – Albenga (Italy).
Tito would like to thank all the local climbers for their encouragement and loving support during the ascent of La Rimbambita.
