Julia Chanourdie has repeated Stefano Ghisofi's Hell'Avaro, 8c+/9a, at Tetto di Sarre in the Aosta valley, Italy.

Hell'Avaro is a linkup of Hell, 8b, and L'avaro, 8c+, and was first climbed by Stefano in 2015.

It seems the Tetto di Sarre has become quite a favourite crag for Julia as this was the third hard route there for her after L'Avaro last year and Ground zero, 9a, earlier this year.

My guess is that this very steep crag with few natural holds is simply great for competition training. Sort of like an outdoor climbing gym.

Hopefully she'll be able to preserve her good form until the European Championships at the end of the month.
