Eva Scroccaro and Tito Traversa, young Italians on the rise

12.04.2011 by Planetmountain

Eva Scroccaro repeats "Il Padrone Assoluto" 8a/8a+ at Napoleonica and the video of Tito Traversa climbing "Je est un autre" 8b at Castillon in France, filmed by Andrea Tosi.

There's no two ways about it: sport climbing in Italy is currently experiencing an important transformation in which the young climbers are... increasingly young. Or rather, extremely young indeed. Circa three weeks have passed since we talked about Eva Scroccaro, the climber from Trieste who at Misja Pec in Slovenia managed to redpoint her first 8a, at a mere 12 years of age. Now in another crag close to home, the historic Napoleonica, Scroccaro has sent "Il Padrone Assoluto" in the sector Mani di Fatima. A great little eightaslasheightaplus which she sent after just a fe work out sessions and placing all the quickdraws on the successful send. chiuso il suo primo 8a a soltanto dodici anni. Ora nell'altra falesia di casa, la storica Napoleonica

Switching longitude completely and even crossing the Italian border briefly, last Janaury young Tito Traversa sent his first at Castillon in France "Je est un autre". The video of this ascent, filmed by Andrea Tosi of Mountain View Production, is now online and shows clearly that there is still ample room for improvement in the near future!
