With two grade 8b+ and 8c pitches, the five hundred metres of the route are considered to be among the most difficult in the world, and only a small number of people are capable of completing the route. The father and son make their way into the heart of the Dolomites, trusting themselves only to their hands to complete a feat without precedent.
