The Poncione d'Alnasca in the Verzasca valley in Switzerland is a brutal mountain and its vertiginous 600-metre high south face in characteristic reddish-yellow granite is a magnet for the world's best climbers. In 2020, Matteo Della Bordella and his climbing partner Alessandro Zeni return to finally conquer the route they began to develop in 2016. It takes the pair just a few days to complete a free ascent of the route – and some of their leaps into the void to reach the next hold are truly leaps of faith.
