Happy new year!

For Nico, 2007 finished not too bad in Arco. He sent an old, unfinished project bolted by the local Rolando Larcher in Terlago. The route is called now “Thin Ice” and ranges at the dificulty of 8b+/c for 25 meters of vertical climbing on razorblades.

Nico also made the first repeat of “Natural Present” 8c/c+ by -4°C in a snow storm, a redpoint he considered to be perfect training for his future expeditions. The route is about 20m long on steep tufas and is Nico’s first send of year 2008!
