Manolo climbs trad Pinne Gialle in Tognazza
The return of Maurizio Zanolla in Tognazza29 September 2016
Today, Manolo did another time, but using trad protections, one of his last creation in Tognazza, Pinne Gialle. Two years after his first ascent and just one month after the climb of Andrea De Giacometti, Manolo returned to remove spit and to climb Pinne Gialle trad.
With high temperature and humidity, Maurizio Zanolla decide to return finally to close the old project to climb this route in the style thinked just before the FA. Few information at the moment. Joking Manolo said that "was the first time I used the helmet. A possible fall in from the crux can mean a terrible impact against the side wall.
This the comment of Alpine Guide Eric Girardini that was with Manolo yesterday:"After removed all the spit of hardest route of Pinne Gialle, today Manolo did this route again with no worming up before and with very hot temperature at 60 years old! Grade propose 8a easy."
No Manolo is writing a long articole about this new performance and the story linked to the route.
