Bernd Zangerl bouldering Bravirabi in Val Noasca, Italy

22.02.2012 by Planetmountain

In Italy's Val Noasca Bernd Zangerl has established a handful of boulder problems, including Bravirabi 8A+/B.

"I felt like Alice in Wonderland, and was surprised that there were so few boulders opened yet." This is how Bernd Zangerl described his sensations when he visited the beautiful Val Noasca in the Gran Paradiso National Park last autumn. The aim was, obviously, to search for some new lines and the Austrian lost no time at all: "I started right off with one of the best pieces of rock that I found in my whole life - the European version of Midnight Lightning, however maybe a little bit smaller but nevertheless with three stunning problems on it"

The three problems are Temenoi and the highballs El Salvador and Bravirabi, all three circa 8A+/B and the last of which "for sure one of my best granite climbs EVER!" The video of this send is published below, while a selection of photos and the full report can be found on Zangerl's site.
