Colodri - Sottovuoto (7a+/b, 200m, 5 pitches. P. Calza`)
|20th Dec in Arco?|
|6c,7a+/b, 6b, 6c, 6c+|
Very sustained overhanging route in the 7a+/b grade max and 6c mandatory, well protected and never dangerous. The route is a partial modern interpretation of P. Calza` of an old extreme artificial route A3/A4 (Decima sinfonia T. Nannuzzi, M Marsigli 1982). In fact in some pitches of Sottovuoto the old pitons of "Decima sinfonia" are visible...
The route , as the name implies , is very steep and arouses a deep feeling of emptiness….(vuoto) under your shoes ;-)…Needless to say that any withdrawal can be extremely laborious!!!
" Short but intense " : I would say that is the best way to describe this route in two words , if we want a third I would say beautiful. The route runs along the cliffs of western Colodri right in front of the camp , a line aesthetically exceptional, overhanging from the beginning to the end .the route features 5 pitches, (not recommended for those suffering exposur ) alternating fingerholes , slopes , tufas and pockets . exhilarating the 3rd pitch clearly in overhang with its superlative red big tufas for 35m ....
Today with Manuel in a quick but intense Arco Trip characterized by great December sun.
