Maurizio „Manolo“ Zanolla, now 48, has made the first ascent of El sior Favonio at Fonzaso, proposing 8c. According to Planet Mountain, it´s „…an intense, compact just-off vertical slab…“. Manolo needed six goes. Earlier this year, the Italian legend, who´s been a top climber for the last 30 years, repeated Bain de sang, 8c+/9a.
