Spirit, Cime d'Auta

Riccardo Scarian has made the first repeat of "Spirit" on Cime D'Auta. This route was first ascended by Massimo da Pozzo and Danilo Serafini in September 2003 and graded (max 7c+/8a, 7b obbl.). Scarian onsighted the route, stating that the line is quite simply outstanding, one of the best of its genre in the Dolomites. Here's what he had to say:

"Yesterday I went to repeat Spirit, first ascended by Mox Da Pozzo on Cime d'Auta din 2003. Well, the route was beautiful (there are few as beautiful as this in the Dolomies), on excellent rockThe climbing is sustained and never simple, and the icing on the cake was that I managed to on-sight the entire line. I was pleased because the crux 7c+/8a pitch (more like 8a) is an old-style vertical slab, hard to on-sight. Congratulations to Mox for his intuition and having discovered this fantastic line. It is worth receiveing more attention, and can be compared to "Acacia" in R├Ątikon or "Grande onda" by Rolando Larcher on Torre Sprit."
