This is a short video about the first ascent of a new route on the Aiguille Croux in the Mont Blanc massif called L’isola che non c’è.
The 400-metre splitter granite route was opened in 2018 by Federica Mingolla and Gabriele Carrara over five days and goes at 5.12.
“The last pitch proved a revelation, the overhanging crack that forged its way through the final headwall bewitched both of us,” said Mingolla in a story for planetmountain.com. “It was exciting and I believe the dream of every first ascentionist to establish a pitch such as this one ground-up, without falling, reaching the top utterly exhausted. I’ve never felt anything like this before.”
