A new climbing speed record at Cima Grande

Sep 27, 2019 13:53 IST

Swiss alpinist Dani Arnold set a new free solo speed record for climbing the Comici-Dimai route at Cima Grande in Italy on 5th September. The 35-year-old completed the 550-metre long, partly overhanging, mountain face in 46 minutes and 30 seconds. Free solo climbing is the most challenging form of climbing as you have to tackle bare mountain faces without a rope, harnesses or other protective equipment. Arnold now holds the speed record at four of Europe's six major north faces.
