Alberto Gnerro at St. Leger du Ventoux
At St.Leger du Ventoux the Italian Alberto Gnerro climbed eight hard routes between 8a and 8b+
| The Italian Alberto Gnerro on-sighted and repeated a number of hard routes during two quick visits to St. Leger du Ventoux, Provence (22km east of Vaison and 26 km north of Sault). |
In between bad weather spells on his first Easter trip he on-sighted Hilti blues 8a, Spit Blues 8a+ (Alberto believes this to be 8a) and Speed Bull 8b (which believes is 8a+) in just 1 1/2 hours.
On his second trip the incredible Gnerro on-sighted Le Placard 8b, Cool Frénésie 8a, Les épinards aux violettes 8a+ and Sault qui peut 8a (an easy 8a according to Alberto). Above all though he redpointed Le Mur des Six Ciclopes 8b second go, which after a broken hold in the crux, is now more like 8b+.
Well done Alberto!
