Gabriele Moroni sends 8C boulder at Chironico

07.12.2013 by Planetmountain

At Chironico in Switzerland Gabriele Moroni has sent his first 8C boulder problem, Insanity of Grandeur first climbed last year by Dai Koyamada.

Italian climber Gabriele Moroni is on a roll. After repeating numerous difficult sport climbs up to 9a/a+ this summer, the man from Novara now checks in with his first 8C boulder problem Insanity of Grandeur, located at Chironico in Switzerland and first climbed last year by Japanese powerhouse Dai Koyamada.

To link the circa 20 moves Moroni needed 5 days of effort. "This was something I was really keen on doing this winter" Moroni told Planetmountain "and in the end I chose a problem that suited my style." The send was "One of those rare moments when everything works perfectly and you feel like you're connected with the rock..." Let's hope it lasts: he's soon off to Siurana and Margalef in Spain, just like last winter, this time though just for fun, or so he says.
