Springtime Party in Guadagnolo, last Saturday, 30 March. 

On a beautiful sunny day, a merry band of friends celebrated the establishments of two new routes, and the desire to be together and have a good time once again.

The two routes have been set by  Marco Fransesini and Gianluca Vicovaro in the Lower Wall.

The first is Trucco e parrucco (5a).

The second one is Braccio di Ferro (6a) (=Iron Arm), dedicated to  Guglielmo Fornari, for us Memmo, that, after a bad fall, fortunately, is still among us, even if wearing a brace on his arm.

So far almost all the routes of Guadagnolo have been set by Memmo and dedicated to us. 

According to tradition, we not only climbed but also ate and (above all) drank a lot.

Many of us wore the t-shirt of Guadagnolo, to indicate their affiliation to a special place, their devotion to the slopes, to the inclined holds and to the vintage grades.

Guest of honor Guglielmo Fornari, that, even if wearing a brace on his right arm, has spent the whole day with us, and honored the new routes, our table and especially our wine.
