On form James Pearson made quick work of an Italian F8c+ sport route last month.

The route, called Quello che non c'è is a granite sport route on the giant boulder of Sasso Remenno close to Val di Mello, Italy. It was first climbed last year by Simone Pedeferri (see Planet Mountain News) and James' quick tick was the second ascent.

James commented to UKC:

"It was a great experience, and a great surprise to do it.  I was belayed by Simone which made things even more memorable, he was very happy to see his route receive its second ascent."

James climbed the route on his first redpoint attempt after working the moves.
