“The steepest multi-pitch climb I’ve ever established!”. This is how Simone Pedeferri describes La Divina Commedia, the fascinating climb at Buco del Piombo in Valle Bova in Northern Italy, bolted by Simone together with another Ragni di Lecco member, Luca Schiera.

The route follows a spectacular arch and, in its 150 m length, it overhangs more than 70 m.

The first three pitches of the route are the hardest (8b – 8a – 8b+) and the finally flurry towards the lip of the cave via a 7c, a 7c+/8a and a 7b. The route was cleaned freed in July 2014 by Simone and documented in a film by another exceptional climber, Michele Caminati. The route is dedicated to Mario Canali, the 67-year-old local alpinist who died in the area in 2014.
