Second 8C boulder by Gabriele Moroni on Ziqquart
First repeat of this 8C by Niccolò Ceria in Gaby02 October 2017
Beautiful news for the Italian boulder! Gabriele Moroni climbed Ziqquart, 8C by Niccolò Ceria a Gaby.
Gabriele Moroni performs the first repeat of Ziqqurat, an 8C located at Gaby, Aosta Valley, opened by Niccolò Ceria in December 2005, after several days of attempts for a problem Niky considered his toughest at the time.
Now Gabry also closes this line running on the perfect edge of a roof and reports on Instagram:
"After day one I got completely hooked and felt the needing of going to try it whenever I had some free time from work. The process on this boulder has been crazy. From not to be able to even do all the moves on day1 to do all the moves and pretty decent links on day2, to actually fall twice at the last move on day 3 and 4. Then on day 5, alone, I managed to put all my physical and mental energies in one single try."
This is the second 8C boulder for Gabry in addition to The Story of Two Worlds in Cresciano, the third if considered also Practice of the Wild, that Gabry climbed last year but for which he proposed a 8B+ grade.
In addition to these two 8C Gabry also boasts fifteen 8B + career so far, the last one a few days ago with the first ascent of Murano Low in Champorcher.
