'Ground Zero' for Gnerro

12.09.2002 by

Alberto Gnerro frees ‘Ground Zero’ at the Tetto di Sarre (AO) and believes it be be harder than nearby Avaro 8c+/9a

After a disappointing performance in this year’s Rock Master, Alberto Gnerro freed his long-standing project ‘Ground Zero’ at Sarre, N. Italy. Taking a line to the left of ‘Parsifal’, Gnerro feels it to be significantly harder than Avaro 8c+/9a. Should this turn out to be true, then this could well be Italy’s first 9a. Gnerro sent the route third try on 11 September and told us:


“How much would I give for doing something like this three days ago? I don’t know whether I’ll ever show just what I’m capable of in front of a large crowd. Ground Zero is a name that evokes sad memories, but for me – on this very particular day and its strange atmosphere – this route will just be a nice memory and a great gift that this sport has given me. Even when it’s difficult to believe in yourself. I have no idea how hard Ground Zero is, but I think it’s harder than Avaro. Those who repeat it will let us know.”
