After climbing through a big storm for the final pitches, and spending a bitter cold, wet night at the top of Tre Cime Oeste, I'm down and happy to report the First Female ascent of Bellavista, 8c, a 2-year dream of mine to climb!
Bellavista, which crosses one of the biggest roofs in the Dolomites, was first climbed free by Alex Huber in 2001 and has since been repeated by Mauro Bole (freed all pitches but on two separate days i.e not in one push), Helmut Kotter, David Lama, Luka Krajnc, Dani Moreno and now Sasha Digiulian.
Sasha climbed the route together with Edu Marin.
