Second ascent of Poison the Well for Jimmy Webb!
Obviously, before the COVID-19 emergency...07 April 2020
Another great ascent for Jimmy, of which we know only now ...
Poison the Well, 8C +, one of the hardest boulders in Ticino and in the world, a long-standing project in Brione that just one year ago became the first of the grade for Giuliano Cameroni!
Already last year Jimmy Webb came close to send it ... but the dream of the second ascent remained there until this season ... before that COVID-19 stopped the whole world, climbers included.
In fact, it is only today that Jimmy reveals his climb of exceptional line, done the last month, and this is the comment on his Instagram profile:
“Throwing it back to simpler times last month in Ticino, CH. Its been a struggle to stay psyched at the moment and to see the point of even posting something on here. Yet, in the end, I suppose our lives must go on. Even if it’s a life much different from what we’re used to.. I’d like to think we will come out of this a changed world for the better. We’re all in this together and I hope everyone out there is being as smart and safe as possible. As for this picture, taken of course by the homie @kevintakashismith, is of me snagging the second ascent of ‘Poison the Well’ 8C+ . After putting in a good amount of effort last season it felt so damn good to come back and finish it up. Huge fist bump to my amico @giuliano_cameroni for establishing this test piece. Giul has always been one of the best climbers I’ve ever met, and his drive and motivation towards pushing the limit of our sport is something I respect so much. Cheers homie, you’re a legend”
