Paige Claassen sent Art Attack (8c) at Sasso Remenno
A huge incredible vertical slab. A legendary more and more difficult 40-meter route at Sasso Remenno crag, in the Central Alps close to the famous Piz Badile. “Art Attack” (8c) is one of the worlds hardest slabs: a unique route, an awesome extreme challenge for climbing wizards as American C.A.M.P. athlete Paige Claassen, 23, that achieved the 2nd ascent of this masterpiece since the FA by strong Italian Simone Pedeferri in 2004.

«I worked on “Art Attack” for about 20 days – Paige says –. It was a very frustrating process because the weather conditions were very bad for the month we were in Italy. It has been very warm and humid during our time in Italy, and this made climbing a slab on granite very difficult. However, I really enjoy climbs that are technical and require mental perseverance, so this was an important route for me. I was also interested in trying the route because since Simone Pedeferri established it in 2004, no one has repeated the route. I spent a lot of time cleaning moss and dirt off the route, and figuring out very precise beta. The route is an extension to a 7c, so the crux of “Art Attack” is the final four bolts of the route. Thin holds on very poor feet lead to a very long move that required the full length of my arms. Each day I tried the route, the rock was dry but the air was very wet and friction was very poor. However, I had a time limit because we planned to leave for Japan on October 3rd, so even though the weather was bad, I had to continue trying. On the day I sent the route, I tried once and fell low and was very frustrated. I had basically given up, but I decided to try again because I had no other options. Even though the conditions were quite wet, somehow I managed not to fall and I finished the route! I was very relieved because this was the second to last day of our trip and I wasn't sure that I would have the opportunity to complete the route. I'm very excited and I hope that other people will want to try this great route that Simone established!».

Before Art Attack Paige sent a fast first female ascent of wonderful “Solitary Men” (8b/b+) at overhanging Strombix crag close to Sasso Remenno.

Italy has been the 3rd stage of the amazing global event Lead Now Tour. Paige is crossing the world to attempt significant climbing challenges in 12 countries over 12 months to inspire people of all cultures to lead a life of adventure. Moreover she wants to raise $ 120,000 to enable women and children to sustain their own communities while solving diverse social problems.

During her month in Italy, Paige visited C.A.M.P. head office in Premana to cooperate with our R&D department. We made also a great interview to know deeper this strong American climber; it will be published soon in our website, stay tuned!
