Bodet & Petit down grade Camillotto Pellissier

After a swift raid in the Dolomites Stéphanie Bodet and Arnaud Petit ticked off Alpenliebe and Camilotto Pellissier. How ever they disagree with the routes grade and take the crux 8a+ pitch down to 7c+. I have only tried the first pitches and they felt like they where benchmark graded so I'm a bit surprised that the 8a and 8a+ pitches are being down graded so significantly. How ever most interesting  and good is that Bodet and Petit really liked the climbing in Tre Cime! Its magic so if you have never been I strongly recommend you have a go at it!

The shit you spread in Ceuse!

Last year was a bad in terms of theft, littering, illegal camping at Céüse and this year it seams to be increasingly bad. I like to point out that it is illegal to camp or bivy under the cliff or up by the parking above the designated Camping.

If this don't stop and the climbers keep leaving trash and using the nature as a public toilet it will eventually lead to a climbing being banned at Céüse. Using the nature is for free but it comes with a responsibility to leave no trace. This link provides some sad insight to the issue.

My advice is that if you can't afford the 6€ camping then stay at home!
