Gabriele Moroni repeats Ziqqurat 8C at Gaby in Valle d'Aosta

di

The video di Gabriele Moroni making the first repeat of Ziqqurat, an 8C boulder problem located at Gaby in Valle d’Aosta and freed in 2015 by Niccolò Ceria.



Septmber, often referred to as Sendtember in climbing terms, due to the fact that as the temperatures drop the much-needed friction arrives creating ideal send conditions. After having dispatched the highball boulder problem 29dots in Valle dell’Orco, at the end of September Italy’s Gabriele Moroni made the first repeat of Ziqqurat, the long roof traverse freed in 2015 by Niccolò Ceria graded 8C. Moroni sent the problem on his fifth day, after having fallen off the last move on two previous days.

Ziqqurat is Moroni’s second 8C after having repeated The Story of Two Worlds at Cresciano in Switzerland in 2014. A few days prior to Ziqqurat the 30-year-old also made the first ascent of Murano sit 8B+ at nearby Champorcher.
