Giuliano Cameroni has made the first ascent of Poison the Well V16 in Brione, Switzerland. The 21-year-old previously climbed seven V15s, according to 8a.nu.
It took Cameroni eight days to send the long-running project. “It’s been a know project for more than ten years now, it’s the logical direct version to the classic Pamplemousse V12,” wrote Cameroni on 8a.nu.
“It took me eight days during a month and a half. The key was resting the specific muscles and waiting for the good conditions. Since you have to be super accurate, you also need a bit of luck to stick the crux hold perfectly. But the stronger you are and the easier it is to be precise, so after 8 days everything felt a little better.”

Sleepwalker V16 // FA. Back in the middle of November we made a trip to Red Rocks to escape the snow falling in California. I had a plan to try a very rad and HARD project in Black Velvet Canyon that was originally tried by @nalle_hukkataival. Initially I could not do a single move. But over the course of 11 days… with many moments of frustration I found myself on top of what could be the hardest boulder in the country. Cheers to @kevintakashismith for the photo, the vid, and all the support.
