Stefano Carnati makes his Moon Landing 9a at Passo della Presolana

di

At Passo della Presolana in Northern Italy Stefano Carnati has made the first free ascent of Moon Landing 9a.

Last Saturday at the cool summer crag Passo della Presolana Italian climber Stefano Carnati completed Moon Landing, a 65-move route for which the 22-year-old has put forward the grade 9a. After sharing a start with other routes, Moon Landing climbs the obvious pillar all the way to a delicate traverse that holds the crux of the entire line.

The route breaches "perfect grey limestone" and was bolted by local climbers Luca Bana and Bernardo Rivadossi who established the vast majority of climbs at the beautiful crag. Located circa 1 hour NE of Bergamo and sitting at about 1300 meters above sea level, this is an ideal crag to escape from the summer heat.

Needless to say, Carnati is on fire: at the start of July he repeated the 9a+ Jungle Boogie at Céüse, while recently at the home crags he redpointed The Party's Here, a 9a freed at the end of 2019 by Gabriele Moroni, and also made the first ascent of MegaGeremia, a 9a that adds another 15 moves to the 8c+ Supergeremia at Valbrona Nuova above Lake Como. Even if they’re both the same grade, Carnati considers Moon Landing at the Presolana Pass his first most difficult ascent to date.
