Matteo Piccardi free ascent of Camillotto Pellissier
At Cima Grande di Lavaredo
09 September 2011
Last August, Matteo Piccardi – Alpine Guide and member of Ragni di Lecco group - has managed the free ascent in one day of Camillotto Pellissier at Cima Grande di Lavaredo.
The route was opened in artif by E. and M. Minuzzo between 20 and 29 July 1967 with eight bivies and then free ascended on 2003 by Bubu Bole, who had graded the route 8b (11 pitches 7b+, 7c, 8b, 8a, 7a, 8a+, 6c+, 6b, 6a, 4a, 5a).
Matteo tried the first pitches and sent at 2nd go the most difficult; the next day, belayed by his wife Alessandra, free ascended the whole route, exiting at 3PM from the roof of the last hard pitch done with the energy of despair - he writes in his blog.
