Hi, 

I was planning on monte brento via vertigine this month but my partner has just bailed. Anyone free and fancying a 30 pitch route?

Thanks

 Did you by any chance show him that pic of what the bolts look like - posted on the other channel?

Its currently sub-zero during the day,

and may well be covered in snow after the recent storms...

Thanks for posting the link; looks like a very useful site, with which I was previously unfamiliar. Fortunately the Monte Brento that David has his eye on is actually in Arco - which, while not immune to oncoming winter is, I think, nonetheless rather more temperate!

What kinda proficiency are you looking for? I've climbed some multi-pitch in the dolomites but I'm not 100% with the grading

Oooh I thought.. Italy always sounds nice to me, don't know the route but I could do the grade, let's have a look at some photos.. er          oh.      wow.       I'd love to help you Dave but after gaping and  wondering and reading decriptions I now want to learn some aid because that route looks So good and laughably nuts, for a long way. Definitely vertigine.  

 Auguri!)

Re grading. First 15 pitches 6b French max. But bolts a little spaced. Top 15 pitches, A2, but I can do those

Don't worry about the aid. I can do that if you can lead the first 15 free pitches
