Scottish Climber Robbie Phillips Sends Bellavista, 10-pitch 8b+
Robbie Phillips, joined by Logan Barber, sent Bellavista, an 8b+ alpine climb in the Dolomites.
Phillips posted on his blog: This experience has left me with no doubt in my mind that this style of climbing leaves something with you unlike that of any single pitch climb. It’s a true battle with your body and mind.
Alex Huber bagged the first ascent of Bellavista in 2001, and at the time it was considered the most difficult alpine climb in the world. It remains at least one of the hardest to this day.
