Valdo Chilese and Nicola Pesavento hard redpoints at Fonzaso

14.02.2007 by Planetmountain

Valdo Chilese redpoints El sior Favonio 8c at Fonzaso, N. Italy, and together with climbing partner Nicola Pesavento repeats Belfagor 8b+.

Less than a month ago we reported about two rare repeats of "Mare Allucinante" 8b+ at Lumignano, N. Italy, at the hands of Valdo Chilese and Silvio Reffo. Now, just a few weeks later, the 17 year old Valdo is back in the limelight with his fast repeat (read just 4 attempts) of "El sior Favonio" 8c at Fonzaso! The route, freed by Manolo in May 2006, is an extension of Intrepido Pallino (8a+) and totals a staggering 60 moves. According to those in the know Valdo sent the line with "staggering ease". A few days prior to this ascent Valdo had also sent "Belfagor", an 8b+ with a violent start, to say the least. Congratulations!

And congratulations to Nicola Pesavento, the "cyborg" of N. Italy, who climbed "Belfagor" aswell. This comes after his successful September ascent of "Nagaj" 8c at the Covolo, the training ground of some of the strongest climbers in Italy.
