On June 29, Giuliano Cameroni announced that he’d made the first ascent of Power of Now in Magic Wood, Switzerland, grading the problem 8C/V15. The 60-degree overhanging problem culminates in a huge throw to the lip. Cameroni found that he couldn’t stick the move if his feet cut, so he had to focus on maintaining tension through his right foot throughout the move. Watch the first ascent above.

Cameroni explained why he chose to call the problem Power of Now in an Instagram post:
