Ground Zero, Italy’s first F9a, was originally climbed by Alberto Gnerro on September 11th 2002 – exactly 12 months after the 9/11 World Trade Centre attacks. The French climber has been trying the route since last year having repeated L’avaro (F8c+). Last year she finished 6th in the Lead World Cup. Ground Zero is Julia Chanourdie’s first F9a.
