In August, the Italian Luca Rinaldi secured the second ascent of the 8c boulder Power of Now in Magic Wood, Switzerland.

Power of Now is undoubtedly one of the most impressive lines on the blocks of the Magic Wood. Strong and dynamic moves and the necessary portion of determination are required for the ascent. The boulder was first climbed by the Ticino professional climber Giuliano Cameroni in June 2020.

Only a few weeks later, the Italian secured himself Luca Rinaldi the second ascent of Power of Now. The video of his inspection is now online.
