Italian Niccolo Ceria has established an outstanding new roof problem in Gaby, Italy. He called Ziqqurat (8C/V15) his “biggest project of the year” and commented on the unique quality of the line on Facebook.

“Every climber who has been searching for a perfect horizontal roof knows how hard it is to find a 90° degrees angle with holds, instead of the typical blank and impossible cave. This roof definitively represents an exception for me, since the holds on the edge make the climbing possible.” He compared the problem to the classic Riverbed (V13) in Magic Wood, Switzerland.
Niky wrote that the project took him “days, effort, patience, and training.” “Every time I failed I was really excited, since some positive points always came out in each attempt. The peculiarity is of course the perfect cut of the roof and (not visible in the photo) the technical and spicy final arête. The full sequence took me in total 9 days, 6 of them during 2015 and during my highest shape peaks. Probably my hardest so far, but I feel definitely more glad about the uniqueness of the boulder.”

This was Niky’s hardest FA and his 2nd V15 after Font’s The Big Island which he completed last spring. These two ascents cap a long list of V14’s around the world including, most recently, the 2nd ascent of Ben Moon’s famed Voyager Sit in the UK Peak District. Here’s the video of that ascent.
