Andrea Ratti climbed Spirit Walker in Masino Valley
Andrea Ratti is a strong sport climber that works in the R&D department of C.A.M.P. In the last weeks he got his first 8c and on 30th May he climbed the legendary Spirit Walker in Masino Valley (Central Alps).

C.A.M.P.

Spirit Walker is the first Italian 8c, climbed by Daniele Pigoni in 1991 and repeated only a few times. This 12-meter long route is an authentic challenge, a unique sequence of extreme movements that needs perfect conditions to be climbed.

Andrea started to attempt Spirit Walker some weeks ago, realizing immediately that he could achieve it. He made around 20 attempts during 7 days and eventually he got the 5th ascent of the route. The video of the climb shows a 3-minute vertical dance by a talented young athlete that climbs only during his free time. C.A.M.P. is proud and happy for Andrea and congratulates him for this exciting success!

I decided to try Spirit Walker because it is an historical route, the first Italian 8c Andrea says . I fell several times at the last hard movement and I started to become nervous; but last Friday everything went in a perfect way: I didn't make mistakes and I finally reached the top!.

The day after Andrea went to Arco where he redpointed an 8a and an 8a+: on 1st June he flashed a 7c and got a new 8a+ at second go; then he onsighted another 7c.

Both in Masino Valley and in Arco Andrea used one of the new harnesses that C.A.M.P. will introduce next July at the OutDoor trade show in Friedrichshafen (Germany). Tested by our super climber on the field, the harness will be available in the stores starting from 2015.
