Eric Albertini "on fire" at Massone thanks important ascents
Climbs Armageddon 8c/+ and Pure Dreaming 9a in few days02 October 2018
Important days for Eric Albertini that in few days, repeated two interesting routes to Massone, a crag in Arco di Trento that is living a true “second youth.”
We've already talked about Eric in the past, and more than once. In fact, between the end of 2016 and the beginning of 2017, Eric had centered the ascents of Underground 8c+/9a, Thunder Ribes 9a and nothing less than the first repetition of Ultimatum, 9a+, route freed by Stefano Ghisolfi. But this is the remote past. Now Eric is back in "his" wall and, despite a year a bit special, he did the his first repetition of Armageddon, route freed by his friend Alfredo Webber a few days ago, and above all has also climbed Pure Dreaming, 9a pitch freed by Adam Ondra at the beginning of the year.
"After sabbatical months due to lack of motivation and other problems, I returned to this crag to pick up the shape and also the motivation ... and so it was. I managed in fact in the 1st repetition of Armageddon, the route climbed by Alfredo Webber that I solved in a few attempts and for which I propose the 8c/8c+ and after I managed to climb Pure Dreaming, 9a always in the pueblo, 3rd repeat…
Now I would have another super project already but I have not a lot of time for this. I hope to return on the project this winter.”
Eric thanks Scarpa and Rafiki for the support.
