Swiss Alpinist Dani Arnold Sets Speed Record on Cima Grande (Italy)


Dani Arnold climbed the Comici-Dimai route 3 occasions with close friends and very carefully ready himself ahead of tackling the north face of the Cima Grande on September 5th 2019 for his speed record – writing history once again. The legendary 550-metre-lengthy, partly overhanging mountain face is a single of the peaks of the Tre Cime di Lavaredo, a striking massif in the Sexten Dolomites in Italy.

At the day of his speed record, the circumstances have been something but quick.

“The rock is not actually strong and due to the quite a few climbs of other parties pretty slippy, virtually polished”, explains Dani.

Although an knowledgeable celebration demands six to seven hours to ascend on this route, the 35- year-old reaches the leading soon after about 46 minutes and thus beats the prior record by virtually 20 minutes.

The Swiss overtakes two teams in the wall and a different a single at the summit – just ahead of he stands at the really leading, overwhelmed by his feelings.

“This accomplishment signifies a lot to me. Much less than two months ago, I was on my 1st eight-thousander. If you are into climbing, you know you will not be in your greatest shape and rather tired soon after such an expedition. Finding so match once again in this brief time is just cool” Dani says.

How proud the Swiss is of his overall performance, he reveals with a wink “Almost all the terrific mountaineers have left their mark on the Tre Cime di Lavaredo – now I’m component of them”.
