Moritz Welt cracks Dreamtime (8c) within a short time

Moritz Welt makes short work of Dreamtime (8c) and climbs the Cresciano classic in two sessions. In Brione, the strong German also secures a repeat of the 8B boulder Amber.

recently announced Moritz world the first ascent of the 9a + route Lazarus in the Franconian Jura. In contrast to the line drilled by Markus Bock, which he worked on for over a year, the bouldering classics in Ticino seemed to be easy for him. For Dreamtime in Cresciano the 21-year-old needed just two sessions, one last winter and one this year. In view of the short project planning phase, it is all the more astonishing how easy Moritz Welt makes the Fred Nicole test piece look. Convince yourself.

Moritz Welt ended the old year with the inspection of another classic, this time in Brione: Amber (8B). “A perfect end to a good second half of 2022,” sums up the 21-year-old. Funny sessions and good friends, combined with the magnificent rock in Ticino, that puts you in a good mood for the upcoming New Year's week. We are curious to see which boulders will fall.
