Ground Zero for Alberto Gnerro at Tetto di Sarre

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.”
