Marco Milanese Tre Cime di Lavaredo triple free solo & BASE jumps

di

Yesterday Marco Milanese free solo climbed Cima Piccola, Cima Ovest until half height and Cima Grande in the Dolomites before BASE jumping off all three of the Tre Cime di Lavaredo.

"More than just a dream come true" and "a great great great day.” There are the words used by Marco Milanese to describe his escapede on the Tre Cime di Lavaredo yesterday, when he free soled three classic rock climbs and returned to the base of the peaks via rapid BASE jumps.

The Italian mountain guide began the day by climbing Via Normale up Cima Piccola before parachuting down to the ground and heading towards Cima Ovest. Here he followed the classic Spigolo Demuth Arete to mid-height before jumping off with his lightweight parachute once again. He ended the triad by climbing the Dibona route up Cima Grande and flying down with his wingsuit.

Milanese acted completely autonomously without any ground support whatsoever. He free soloed more than 1350 meters and carried out the three jumps in 5 hours and 40 minutes. Milanese had carried out numerous jumps off the iconic towers in the past and this “aesthetically perfect triad” represents “the best way I can imagine my ideal style of alpinism.”

Prior to the jumps Milanese had coordinated with Germany’s Thomas Huber, who in 2008 had leaped from the world famous towers himself. At the time the German chose different routes and different partners before B.A.S.E. Jumping off Cima Ovest and Cima Grande.
