Gabriele Moroni climbs Dreamtime at Cresciano
On 02/02/2008 Gabriele Moroni from Italy repeated Dreamtime (Cresciano, Switzerland), one of the most beautiful and famous boulder problems in the world.
Frederic Nicole's October 2000 masterpiece has been repeated by the likes of Bernd Zangerl, Christian Core, Mauro Calibani, Chris Sharma, Malcolm Smith, Dave Graham, Kilian Fischhuber, Tyler Landman, Jon Cardwell and others. This list of excellent climbers now grows that bit longer as Gabriele Moroni from Italy sent the problem on 02 February, naturally from the sit-start.
As those in the know are well aware, the problem was originally graded F8c but now seems to be settling down at F8b+. But they all seem to agree that no grade can be attached to this dream moment.
Moroni has now set off for a bouldering trip in the States and we'll be hearing more from him later. In the meantime enjoy the video, filmed on a mobile phone from by our field reporter Nicola Noè ;-)
