Italian, Niccolò Ceria has repeated a number of difficult problems, including Meadowlark Lemon, ~8B+, during his ongoing trip to the US.

Although he is still only 20, Niccolò has already managed to travel quite a lot, repeating and making first ascent in places like Rocklands, Västervik, Prilep and of course many of the areas around the Alps.

Now, he is the US, where Red Rocks, Nevada, was the first stop.
Here he made quick work of some 8A's, 8A+'s the odd 8B, Nocturnal emissions, and last but by no means least, Paul Robinson's masterpiece Meadowlark Lemon. The latter has gone from a more or less confirmed 8C (Robinson, Graham, Traversi) to 8B+. The reason, like so many times before, is that new and better beta has been discovered. It seems no one doubts the OG method warrants 8C.

Now, Niccolò has moved on to Bishop where he has already repeated some 8A+'s including a very quick 2nd go ascent of Buttermilker sds.

Something tells me there is more to come.
