Watch BDTV – Episode 4: Sharing the Line
The Bellavista route on the north face of Cima Ovest in the Dolomites looks impossible from the bottom. Despite the 60 meter roof, it was first climbed free by Alex Huber in 2001. It is the first 8c alpine multi-pitch climb in the Dolomites and maybe the world. Next to Bellavista is a route called Pan Aroma, an 8c that cuts right as it reaches the roof.
