Gabriele Gorobey repeats Histerija 8c+ at Misja Pec
Italian climber Gabriele Gorobey has repeated Histerija 8c+ at Misja Pec, Slovenia.
It was Mauro Bubu Bole who in 2007 first brought him to our attention. At the time Bubu had just carried out the first free ascent of Donnafugata on Torre Trieste together with a young climber from Trieste called Gabriele Gorobey. Gorobey was unknown to us, but Bubu guaranteed:"I've seen loads of climbers come and go but rarely someone with this much talent and capable of seeing a bit further still!"
Bubu wasn't wrong, because a year later Gorobey repeated Pugacioff 8b+, a famous slightly just off vertical slab at Napoleonica established in the 80's and which had only been repeated once. And now, with various 8A boulder problems and ten 8c's to his name, the 25-year-old has sent his first 8c+, Histerija at Misja Pec in Slovenia.
