‘Sogni di Gloria’ August 2007 The Dolomites are one of the most impressive areas I have ever seen. Not only is it a great place for climbing it’s also a fantastic place to see the Italian mountain culture; Impressive landscape, very friendly people, rocks to climb and a good local kitchen, what else could you wish for.

5 The Dolomites have a long history of climbing and that shows. A lot of hard Alpine rock routes have been opened in the Dolomites. Walls like the Drei Zinnen look like they’ve been made to be climbed. I’ve seen these walls many times and they still impress me. One day I will climb these towers and until that time conquering them will be one of my dreams as a climber.

Roman van der Werf [The Netherlands]

< On the pictures: Roman in Sogni di Gloria (8c). Roman climbed Sogni di Gloria. This took him 5 attempts, Songi is a real classic route in the Northern part of Italy. It is one of the first, or maybe even the first 8c of Italy. This beautiful route is openend by Luca ‘Canon’ Zardini. First it was classified as an 8b+ but nowadays the route is known as one of the first 8c’s in Italy. Picture by Tiziano Bortoluzzi Shirt : Illusion Tee Pants: Crowbar Pants

Tour-info MEMENTO Fb 8c + or V16

Autumn 2006 I´m driving to Silvretta to see the boulder Memento.

First ascented on the 5th of August in 2005 of Bernd Zangerl (A).

After three hours driving and two hours walking and searching

The Boulder consists of seven extreme moves in a 45° roof.

I´m standing in front of MEMENTO. What a brilliant line!

Bernd thinks to his tour: “I´ve never put more period in

After some “touches”, I’m sure that I must return.

a first-ascent as in Memento, and for me it´s heavier than everything, I climbed up to now.”

Bernhard Schwaiger

& Memento (8c+) Summer 2007 It lasts till middle of July to see memento again. Once there, the crux-jump and the first move didn’t go. Some minutes later I found a solution for the beginning. After that I was able to climb all the moves in a row till the jump. I even tried to jump, but far away from reaching the essential hold. Four days later, before visiting the European Outdoor I stopped for a short visit. I made the jump twice. After the fair I went back to check the jump again. My last

10

attempt resulted in a bad bloody flapper on the fingertip. Two weeks of skin, and rain-pause later, I went back. For the first time I´m so strong and explosive that I could jump higher than the goal-hold. It does certainly go, the question only is, when? A couple of day´s later after the brushing of the holds, I feld totally relaxed. The grip today is really good. My first attempt was the best ever. Ten minutes later I did my second attempt - I’m again completely relaxed, thoughtlessly and cool as I get on. Completely perplexed I climb on the top of the bloc. It lasts a few minutes before I start to realise. Yeah I did it. The name “MEMENTO” translated means “remember” - the ascent of my up to now hardest boulderproblem should be dedicated to our father - who unfortunately died in an mountaineering accident in 1999, and Tanja a very good friend of us who tragically lost her short life in the age of only 23 in a car accident only a few weeks after my ascent,...” Berni Schwaiger [Austria]

Maja Vidmar & World Cups World Cups 2007 At the beginning of every year I set myself some goals and of course i’ll always have some dreams. But looking at last year, it was like a dream came true...... I started my training like I do every year, nothing special, just training, a lot of

22

climbing and a little general fitness to start my season with. Climbing felt really good, and I felt stronger then I ever have. But I did ran into some bad luck during the first competition, all this changed after my first win in Chamonix after that I won all world cups in this competition, and I won a bronze medal in the World Championship, it was like a dream come true. My confidence had grow so much during the season that during the World Cup I felt relaxed and believed in myself, so nerves were hardly a problem, I could even say it went like a breeze. You could say that it was because I had such a strong season but luck also comes into play, and lucky I’ve been this season. Next year I’ll set new goals and dream new dreams, but fot now I’m really pleased with the 2007 season Maja Vidmar [Slovenia] 1. Worldcup Lead - Kranj (SLO) 17.11.2007 1.
