Old projects opened by Andrea Biffi in Montagu

On 3 January I decided to change scenario for a bit and climb some different moves from the ones on my current project.  I went to Worlds Apart in Bad Kloof and tried another project (bolted by Ross Suter) which is the extension of a famous 7b called Delete Button.  I found myself good on the moves and managed to grab the first Ascent on my second go (5 January).  I named it Total Reset and gave it a grade of 8a.  It is really an awesome line with some bouldery section and my First FA 😁  Thanks Sakkie for the golden belay!
Now I feel psyched to go back to my project (picture below), which will definitely be harder than 8a 😉

Ed:  See below (Andrea did open the line)

Andrea Biffi Montagu Climbing

January 18
Still on a high after yesterday’s first ascent at Waterworld crag here in Montagu.  I cannot describe how happy I am to have opened this project that stood there for so long.
The route is really phenomenal climbing, and I cannot wait for someone to try it as well!
I am really happy to have decided to come back into this amazing climbing world, with a different attitude and mind: try hard, but remember that must always be fun!
