Through the intense traffic congesting the historical corsia’s and viale’s Rome to they gym, Rock and Walls, and then toSperlonga my weekly pilgrimage to the rocks.
Grottone becomes my training ground on the weekend and Rock and Walls during the week for Ecole Verticale with my amazing clients and the buzzing Rome climbing community.
Climbing in these historical crags in Italy – one of the birth places of sport climbing - is climbing on the history of our sport. And, like the Madonna statues all over Rome, very polished by the hands of the worshippers! Great training value and great motivation to share it with with some of the new generation the Rogora sisters, Riccardino Moretti.
I felt good to clip the chains in just four tries on Viaggio Infinito8b+ in February. I wanted something harder to train for so I began to spend time on the 8c+ (9a?), Grandi Gesti, but my travel bug was making me itch and dreams of tufas and somemultipitch climbing. A plan was made. Drive to Poland, then to France to visit my French buddy Adrien Boulon and then drive to the ferry to spend one month to climb in Sardegna.
Thank you Monika „Ryba” , Ewa „Sasinka”, Kacha Gliwińska, Monika Sułkowska, Sergio and Silvia for strong motivation to move my ass to some amazing place like Gorropu…
