There are arguably two people in the world that have established V16. One is, of course, the Czech phenom Adam Ondra with his traverse Terranova. The other, however, is a quiet spoken Italian cop by the name of Christian Core. His problem Gioia [Joy] has only been repeated by Adam Ondra, who confirmed the problem's unprecedented grade of V16. Now Core has discovered a new boulder, in the same area as Gioia, near his home in Varazze, Italy. Could this be the first V17?
