Gabri Moroni proves his Ninja Skills

Italian climber Gabri Moroni has repeated one of Nalle Hukkataival’s most famous problems: Ninja Skills, a long and tall 8B+ | V14 located in Sobrio, Switzerland.

Ninja Skills was opened by Hukkataival in 2009 and has been repeated (at least) by Paul Robinson, Jimmy Webb and Niccolò Ceria.

It is about 20 moves long and has two main cruxes, one right at the start, the bump with the left hand, and the other one in the upper part, going for a crimp with the right hand (Hukkataival did that move jumping, Moroni did it way more controlled).

Here’s the video of the first ascent:
