David Fitzgerald, who started climbing in 2012 being 18 years old, has done repeats ‚Big Paw‘ (Fb8b+/c) in Ticino (Schwitzerland). Also he sent the Boulder „The Great Shark Hunt“ (Fb8b) and „Shadowfax“ (Fb8b).
David means by instagram: „Last night, I managed to take down Big Paw (8C)!! This is one of the best lines I’ve ever seen and the hardest I’ve ever climbed abroad. Using the mini-compression method, I had many doubts whether or not I could piece this one together on this short trip to Ticino, especially given how warm it has become here in Chironico lately. Ya gotta keep trying, though. Under the floodlights, I managed to put all doubt aside and stand on top of one of the best lines in the world! I can’t express how happy this makes me feel. Earlier that day, I also climbed a beautiful line called, ‚Midnight Lightning of Ticino‘ (7C+). ⚡ As always, @puzzleglass were on hand to capture all of the drama, which will be shown in their upcoming film #theblocbusterprojec“ Foto: (c) Jess James
