Gabriele Moroni tops 8C boulder at Cresciano

19.02.2014 by Planetmountain

At Cresciano in Switzerland Gabriele Moroni has repeated The Story of Two Worlds, the top boulder problem established by Dave Graham graded 8C.

Second 8C boulder problem for Gabriele Moroni: after Insanity of Grandeur at Chironico last December, the Italian climber now checks in with a repeat of The Story of Two Worlds at nearby Cresciano. Moroni needed 5 days, spread out over the period of a month, to come up trumps on this Dave Graham problem that, since the first ascent in 2005, has become one of the most sought-after hard boulder problems in the world. The result is obviously cutting-edge and confirms once again Moroni's absolute valor, equally at home on 8C boulder problems as on 9a sport climbs.
