Via MammaSandra, new rock climb in Val Zemola, Dolomites

di

On Monte Porgeit in Val Zemola (Dolomites) Daniele Geremia, Nicolò Cadorin and Maurizio Fontana have made the first ascent of Via MammaSandra (7b+, 7a+ obligatory, 250m), a new multi-pitch sport climb.

Making the most of the outstanding weather in November and December 2016, Daniele Geremia, Nicolò Cadorin and Maurizio Fontana established a new rock climb "in a forgotten valley overlooking the south face of Mount Duranno", i.e. Val Zemola above Erto in the Italian Dolomites.

The new route is perhaps the first on Monte Porgeit and was established ground-up after four days. Called MammaSandra, it was freed on Monday, March 20, 2017 by Daniele Geremia and Nicolò Cadorin with difficulties up to 7b+.

Geremia describes the rock as "excellent limestone, rough on the lower section followed by Verdonesque slabs" Geremia concludes “I reckon our route provides some fun climbing in a new and different corner of the Dolomites."
