Video: Carlo Traversi repeats first the crack route Meltdown

In November of last year, Carlo Traversi scored the first iteration of Meltdown (5.14c / 8c +). The route is one of the heaviest rift routes in the world, waiting for 10 years to repeat.

It is not that the route since the first ascent through Beth Rodden 10 rested for many years and therefore did not experience a repetition. No. Sizes like Ron Kauk, Enzo Oddo and Tommy Caldwell Bite the teeth on the testpiece in the Yosemite Valley out. Carlo Traversi has also been in the list of contenders for a long time. Until November 2018 when he's the route Meltdown could wrestle the second ascent (LACRUX reported). Now the video about the ascent is online.
