Gabriele Moroni and Nicolo Ceria, two videos in Switzerland
Video of Gabriele Moroni on Coup de grace 9a and Nicolò Ceria on Never Ending Story 8B+.
Two Italians in the climbing news, and also on video, for climbs in Switzerland. The first is Gabriele Moroni who, as reported on Thursday, succeded in the first repeat of Coup du Grace, Dave Graham's route in Canton Ticino. The second documents young Italian boulder Nicolò Ceria who just the other day sent his first 8B+, the Never Ending Story at Magic Wood. The problem is split into two distinct parts and in 2008 Ceria had sent the "soft" second 8A section, while in 2009 he managed the first part graded Fb8A+. Linking the two was the main project for 2011 and the never ending story proved much shorter that expected: the final chapter, the top, came after just two days of trying.
Come vedrete, entrambi i video sono "unplugged", nude e crude senza lunghi post-produzione. Forse per questo ancora più vere.
Both videos are "unplugged", raw, with no post-production. Perhaps for this reason even truer.
