Gabriele Moroni on Action Directe (5.14d)

Get access to everything we publish when you sign up for Outside+.

In September 1991, Wolfgang Güllich made the first ascent of Action Directe in the Frankenjura, Germany. Generally recognized as the world’s first 5.14d, Action has seen at least 13 repeats, including those by Dave Graham, Adam Ondra, and Kilian Fischhuber. Here, Gabriele Moroni talks about his send of Action Directe in April 2010 and recounts Güllich’s history with the route and free climbing in general.
