Michi Wohlleben and Matteo Giglio on Hystrix

28.09.2013 by Planetmountain

The video of Michi Wohlleben and Matteo Giglio on Hystrix (200m, 8a+ max, 7a obligatory) Pizzo Campana (Rocca Busambra), Sicily.

Pizzo Campana North Face close to Palermo, Sicily; between 2008 and 2010 Matteo Giglio together with Marco Farina, Livia Guarino and Anna Torretta established Hystrix, 200m of beautiful climbing with a section which seemed impossible. In 2012 Michi Wohlleben solved the riddle - thanks to a difficult undercut - and freed the line with difficulties in the region of 8a+.
