Niccolò Ceria Reports on His Rocklands Trip

posted by dpm on 08/27/2013


Italian Niccolò Ceria spent five weeks in Rocklands this summer and came away with an impressive ticklist. He sent a number of hard problems that, for purposes of reporting, I've taken to just calling "V13 or V14" since the difficulty of many problems in Rocklands are being disputed. Some of Niccolò's hardest sends, with his suggested grades were:

V14/8b+: Golden Shadow

V13/8b: Mooiste Meisie, El Corazon, The Power of One, The Vice, Derailed, King of Limbs

V12/8a+: Seveso, Oral Office, Sitting in a Corner with Depression, Black Shadow, Madiba, and Sky (which was originally suggested as V14)

Cerio has a thorough blog report with photos that you can read here and a well-edited video of most of his hard climbing that can be watched by clicking on the image below.
