Damiano Capulli climbs 8c+ at Grotti

04.10.2013 by Planetmountain

On 2 October 2013 the young Italian climber Damiano Capulli repeated Debolezza e Disonore 8c+ at Grotti, Italy.

Debolezza e Disonore, the 8c+ at Gotti freed in 2011 by Fabrizio Peri and repeated shortly afterwards by Alessandro Lamberti, was repeated on Wednesday by Damiano Capulli, the 19-year-old climber from L'Aquila.

Capulli needed circa 15 attempts spread out over 5 days and the success came about on the second redpoint of the day. Capulli wrote the following to Planetmountain "The route is very continuous, with a particularly hard crux on the upper section where you have to stick a monodoigt and dyno for a small edge. The day was great, the weather ideal, I'm really happy!"

Capulli has been climbing for circa 8 years and this, his best result to date, marks an enormous step forward: until the other day, due to his youth competition schedule, the hardest routes he had climbed were 8b+.
