In climbing I do things that I enjoy and want to do not the ones that are currently in fashion.

Your friend and climbing partner Marko Lukiè, who made the second free ascent of the route shortly after Bubu, was the first who felt the difficulties of the route were easier than what they had been graded by Bubu. As far as I know, Marko downgraded only the crux pitch. You went further and downgraded all three hardest pitches…

Marko felt about the grades of the route pretty much the same as I did, but maybe he didn't say it clearly enough.

Which of the hardest routes on the Tre Cime that you repeated - Phantom Der Zinne, Akut, the Couzy Route, Camilotto-Pellesier - do you find the most beatiful?

For sure the most impressive route is Couzy, which finds weaknesses in a very overhanging wall and is probably the hardest of all the listed routes.

Have you got other projects on the Tre Cime? The Spanish Route, maybe Bellavista?

I think next summer I will take a break from the Tre Cime. Belavista is very impressive, but I think it is also very, very hard. I hope my next project on the Tre Cime will be a new route!
