Giuliano Cameroni en la primera ascensión de ‘Power of Now’ 8C

Giuliano Cameroni ha firmado la primera ascensión de Power of Now 8C, en Magic Wood (Suiza), y ha reconocido que «es uno de los mejores bloques que he visto jamás».

Power of Now desploma unos 60º y Cameroni ha necesitado cuatro días para resolverlo. Dice que la clave ha sido «centrarse en el momento. Estar en el presente no es solo necesario en la escalada sino que ayuda a todo en la vida, te da alegría y te aleja presiones extrañas y egoístas».

Mellow ha compartido el vídeo donde el escalador suizo evoluciona sesión tras sesión hasta que consigue salir por arriba en una nueva obra maestra del boulder moderno.

Power of now (8c/v15) FA YES so psyched to have done this one, for sure one of the coolest boulders I’ve ever seen 🙏 Starts with World Cup dihedral straight into a perfect dyno to a good hold, then a few set up moves on sculpted grips lead into the crux, a huge dynamic yet technical move to the lip. The wall is around 60 degrees so although the holds are good they are so far apart that it didn’t feel possibile to stick the lip while cutting the feet. Having good sensations and enough tension on the right foot in order to stick the move became pretty mental. Getting there it’s pretty hard already, and the last move needs to be executed with the right flow. The key was to focus on the moment. So many times on dynamic moves it’s easy to start thinking. When you are free of thoughts and fear of messing up, you just focus on the now, which is an extra element that helps your way up your climb. Being in the present moment is not only necessary in climbing but it helps life in general, it gives joy and takes away weird pressure from the egoistic mind. Meditation takes away negative ideas and helps being in comfort with your whole body and respect nature and other people.
