Niccolò Ceria repeats Meadowlark Lemon at Red Rocks
Italian climber Niccolò Ceria has repeated the boulder problem Meadowlark Lemon V14 at Red Rocks, USA.
After trips to Västervik in Sweden, Rocklands in South Africa and Prilep in Macedonia, Niccolò Ceria certainly couldn't miss out on a 6-week bouldering trip to the USA. At present the Italian is at Red Rocks, just outside Las Vegas where after getting used to this amazing red sandstone he has now repeated the hardest and most famous problem in the area, Meadowlark Lemon. Freed by Paul Robinson in January 2012, this was initially graded V15 (8C) but seems now to have settled in at V14 (8B+). Ceria worked the line for a couple of days and then repeated it using a difference sequence than that used by Robinson, concluding: "The boulder is one of the most impressive I have ever seen and it is for sure at the top of the high quality lines I sent. I feel I have to say hats off to Paul Robinson to have put this stunning line, it is defenitely a masterpiece of bouldering."
