Jimmy Webb claims first repeat of Off the Wagon sit in Val Bavona, Switzerland
The video of American climber James Webb who made the first repeat of Off the Wagon sit, the 8C+/V16 boulder problem freed by Shawn Raboutou in Val Bavona, Switzerland in 2018.
About a fortnight ago 32-year-old American climber Jimmy Webb repeated Off the Wagon sit, the most difficult boulder problem in Switzerland freed in November 2018 by his compatriot Shawn Raboutou.
The Val Bavona testpiece is graded 8C+ and is, as the name suggests, the sit start off the famous cart used for the equally famous Off The Wagon problem that Webb had repeated in 2013, a year after Nalle Hukkataival’s first ascent. Mellow Climbing provides footage of the actual ascent which is shocking for the apparent ease with which Webb makes the send.

Off and on and off the wagon! Last year after many days of efforts I came up empty handed on the new Swizzy testpiece “Off the Wagon sit” 8C+ established by my homie @shawnraboutou.
