This week's Friday Nighter is the first episode of an interesting series of videos from Mammut - Reclimbing the Classics - in which their sponsored climbers revisit some of the most important sport routes of Europe's history.
We know that Action Directe (9a) is going to feature at some point, and there is an image of Jerry Moffat too, which of his routes is coming up?
But this first episode sees Austrian power house Jakob Schubert climbing the Italian classic route of Hyaena in Finale Ligura. Finale is a superb and classic venue right by the sea in Italy, and the old village is often busy with climbers, and is a great winter sun destination, alongside the nearby Oltra Finale (covered in this UKC destination article).
Here's the video:
