This week's Friday Night Video is an awesome 30 minute film from Scottish climber Robbie Phillips. Robbie has just had a successful trip to the Dolomites where he climbed Bellavista (X+) on the north face of Cima Ovest in the Italian Dolomites. This 10 pitch route was first climbed in 2001 by German climber Alex Huber.
With a huge roof crux pitch originally graded at 8c, the route has seen a lot of repeats and the grade is now thought to be around 8b/+, but in a cold alpine environment with difficult conditions. This isn't your typical sport climb...!
