The most difficult route in the world on a vertical wall ?

F.A. Maurizio Zanolla "Manolo" (51 years old), 24/08/2009

Name of the route: Eternit

Crag: Baule (Feltre, Dolomiti, Italia).

Altitude: 1900 mt

Photo by Cristina Zorzi.

The route is the prosecution of “O ce l’hai… o ne hai bisogno” ("You have it ... or You need it")

Just one hold with sika, the rest is completely natural.

27 mt, 60 moves.

Skills required to climb the route: power on fingers, perfect use of feet.

Grade proposition: 9a, even if Manolo thinks Eternit is harder than Bain de sang, Bimbaluna and all the others he climbed.

A very important step on vertical climbing history.

27cragsclimbervoice8a and many others are amazing sites, but sometimes, expecially if you worked a lot to envision, bolt, clean routes or boulders, you want to monetize a little your efforts.

9b can help you in this aim.


As you can see here, in 9b there are many " topo groups ".


You can add a discussion in every "topo group".

In your discussion you can edit and publish your own climbing topoguide, as a "paywall", a "destination page", requiring climbers their payment by credit card or paypal to access and read, even on SMARTPHONES (iphones, android phones, ...)


After having paid, climbers can see, save and print your climbing topoguide.


In this discussion you can add:


1) PHOTOS regarding one specific SECTOR (of routes or bouldering, dws lines)


a) "PHOTO topo":

It's very easy to edit a photo topo:

- upload a photo of a rock in a topo group discussion
