|The Italian Cristian Brenna has always been one for quick redpoints. After Arco's Rock Master 2000, where he placed fourth, he travelled to Val Grande and on-sighted Tak 8a , sent the 50 move stamina route Play Ecrosse 8c third go and also climbed Playtex 8b, all on the same day! |
Two days later he stopped off at the Cubo, a massive gneiss boulder in the Valle d'Aosta characterised by highly technical resined routes, where he redpointed another 55 move route, Doppio Giocho 8c, again third go.
After a difficult start to the World Cup season Cristian recently placed fourth in Courmayeur and is currently sixth in the World Cup ranking. On form like this, he'll be one to look out for at the European Championship in Munich this weekend.
