Michele Caminati breezes The North Sail 8A+ at Cresciano

25.12.2012 by Planetmountain

At Cresciano in Switzerland Michele Caminati has made the first ascent of the boulder problem The North Sail 8A+.

"Probably among one of the most best lines in Cresciano." This is how Michele Caminati describes his latest effort, the obvious arete to the left of the slabby Salamandre che si located shortly before the Jungle Book sector. Caminati tried the final moves by abseil and after a couple of sessions he came up trumps, learning later that part of the problem had been climbed years ago by Austrian Klem Loskot. But with this sit start the line seems more obvious and and so Caminati has decided to call this 8A+ The North Sail.
