Giuliano Cameroni manages 8c first ascent on the Gotthard Pass

Giuliano Cameroni makes Switzerland a nice present on National Day. He opens with Hazel Grace an 8c boulder on the Gotthard Pass.

This year's ticklist of the young Tessiner can be seen. Around 25 Boulder in the eighth French grade Giuliano has already collected in the year 2017. Including 8c twice and 8b + four times. On the 1. August announces the 20-year-old that he has managed the first ascent of a boulder on the Gotthard Pass. He calls his latest creation Hazel Grace and specifies 8c as the rating. We asked Giuliano about the visit:

Dave Graham found the line more than ten years ago and since then it has always been the project of the area: I never considered the idea of ​​trying it since I always thought it was too hard, but this season I decided to try it once at least. Turned out to be one of my favorite hard boulders. The crux is the first move, a very difficult right-hand lock-off where you only need finger power. After that it's maybe 8a+, but the style is totally different and the holds are way bigger. Took me about six days to do both the crux and the boulder.
