On 10/11/2002 the Italian climber Erri De Luca repeated "La Teoria dell'8a", a spectacular 8b+ that crosses the Grotta dell'Arenauta at Sperlonga. 20m long, the line was originally called "Viaggio = infinito".
De Luca's ascent is only the sixth, and what makes it all the more impressive is the fact that Luca, better known as a journalist, is 52 years old! If that isn't motivation enough for all, let's not forget that Luca climbs without chalk!
