Tatewari, Fiducia al Sentiero

In December 2009 and early January 2010, Alessandro Baù and I opened Fiducia al Sentiero (500m, 10 pitches, 7b+ [5.12c; 7a obligatory]) on Tatewari’s south wall. The route is a mix of bolts and trad: six pitches trad, with the rest having bolts where you cannot place anything else. There are two bolts at each rappel station, though. We took three days in late December to open the route, climbing and fixing the first four pitches on day one, then returning and opening three more pitches to a good bivy spot, where we spent the night before finishing the route the third day. We returned on January 2, 2010, for the redpoint, alternating leads.
