Solo per vecchi guerrieri repeated by Riccardo Scarian

21.08.2007 by Planetmountain

Riccardo Scarian has made the third ascent of Solo per vecchi guerrieri, the multi-pitch desperate first ascended by Maurizio “Manolo” Zanolla on the north face of "El Colaz", Vette Feltrine (Dolomites).

On 07/08/2007 Riccardo Scarian made the third ascent of Solo per vecchi guerrieri, the 4 pitch 8c/9a first ascended in August 2006 by Manolo on the north face of "El Colaz", Vette Feltrine (Dolomites). As many will remember the first repeat of this route, defined by Riccardo as "one of the best routes I've ever climbed", was carried out by local Mario Prinoth on 17 October 2006

Riccardo had initially attempted "for old warriors only" together with Prinoth in 2006, and although he had freed all the pitches, he still needed to climb the route free in a day. After checking the route a couple of times at the start of summer, Riccardo redpointed the route on 7 August after having fallen just once on the final crux pitch.

he had the following to say about the line: "this is without a doubt one of the best routes I have ever climbed, the exposure is mind boggling, the rock fantastic, the route is very demanding as the moves are really on-off and the pro is really run-out. Congratulations to the first ascentionist who has managed to unearth an extraordinary line up this face. Definitley a route not to be missed."
