Silvio Reffo climbs Goldrake, 9a+
Fourth ascent in Cornalba17 May 2016
Silvio Reffo gets back to 9a+, climbing Goldrake in Cornalba. This route, bolted by the late Bruno Tassi, a.k.a. Camos, has become the ultimate test-piece for all the strongest Italian climbers: Moroni, Carnati, Ghisolfi and now Reffo, the strong physiotherapist from Alba Vicentina.
Silvio had started working the route a few weeks ago with Stefano Ghisolfi, who had gone back soon to seal the deal with the route. Super Circo Abusivo at Paline, Under Vibes, Biologica in Arco, Back Road, The Ring of Life at Covolo, Sanjski par Extension in Osp, are some of the 9th grade routes previously climbed by Silvio, that raised the bar again with Goldrake.
Italian climbers are doing really good recently, and we can all expect something more in the close future.
