Dino Lagni, top climbs at Fonzaso and Covolo

28.05.2009 by Planetmountain

In April 2009 Dino Lagni repeated Drumtime at Fonzaso while on 10 May he sent SuperAle 8c+ at Covolo, Italy.

Champions never rest. 10 years after that legendary competition in Birmingham where he was crowned Lead World Champion, Dino Lagni continues to climb on top form and this spring he proved his worth with two hard repeats in northern Italy.

The first dates back to April, when the 40 year old repeated Drumtime at Fonzaso, the route first ascended by Riccardo Scarian in March 2006 and now, after Luca Zardini and Paolo Munari, repeated by Lagni in 6 attempts.

Lagni needed the same number of attempts to carry out the first repeat of the new testpiece at his home crag, SuperAle at Covolo. The route had been freed by none other than Adam Ondra earlier this month after having raised the bar by onsighting two 8c's in the same day.

Lagni had the following to say about SuperAle "I was really pleased to climb this route, especially for the fact that it was Ondra who freed it! The route is worth climbing and has a crimpy first section where you have to save your energy as much as possible for the final wide moves on pumpy hols to the finishing jug!"
