How far does your perseverance stretch? Three years of effort, over 150 sessions, -6ºC in 50cm of snow, all-night 12 hour sessions, then 25ºC in July... Ninja Skills Sit Down Start was Martin Keller's ultimate nemesis. In this short film, join Martin on his journey as he discovers the secret to unlocking his first ascent of Ninja Skills 8C/8C+ (V15/V16)

Nestled in between chestnut trees on a south facing slope in Sobrio, Switzerland, the 8B+ (V14) stand start for the famous Ninja Skills was first climbed in 2009 by Nalle Hukkataival.

Der Tessiner Giuliano Cameroni zieht mit Charles Albert von Block zu Block und lässt verlauten, dass ihm "Off the Wagon" (8b+) gelang. Während eines Versuches kam es aber zu einem üblen Abgang, wie das nachfolgende Video zeigt.

Der Boulder "Off the Wagon" im Val Bavona wurde erstmals durch Nalle Hukkataival Im November 2012 begangen. Illustre Namen wie Jan Hojer und Jimmy Webb folgten. Nun gelang Giuliano Cameroni der Durchstieg der hübschen Linie. Sein Kommentar: “Took me ~12 days over almost two months but eventually I did Off the wagon (8b+). After failing on the first move for 8 days I thought that it was just too powerful for me. Then Charles came and found a crucial foothold, which allows to stick the crimp without loosing the feet. The move was still very difficult and low-percentage, but at least it was possible. After a day of weakness where I saw the light, I fell like a bag of potatoes holding the swing on the jug. I thought I would do it soon. I was wrong.”

Dave Graham mit einem weiteren Puzzleteil

Irgendwie kam Giuliano der Sache bis auf den finalen Zug näher. Ein Tipp von Dave Graham schaffte dort Abhilfe. Nun war nur noch das Wetter, wie Giuliano erzählt: “Me and Charles were a little under pressure especially because weather was turning shit. Luckily I had a window last Friday. He almost did it too, but fell because of a silly mistake.. The feeling you get when you link those moves is inexplicable, but for once it felt like I wasn’t doing any special effort and everything was just perfectly clicking together.”
