Stefano Ghisolfi climbs La Capella, 9b, at Siurana, five stars performance of Italian champion

Again him, again a 9b, the fourth for him. Italian master class Stefano Ghisolfi resolved his project at Siurana doing the second ascent of La Capella, a route opened by friend Adam Ondra in 2011 and never climbed again. A not easy ascent, not only for the grade…

"I'm very happy that the battle is over. It took me around 10 days of effort in the last month. At the beginning it felt very hard, I found out a new beta for the first crux but it took me 3 days to do the move. Then after few days it felt possible and I felt ready to do real attempts, but a hold of second Crux broke and took me some other days just to do that single move again. At the end everything went in the best way, despite the sharpness of a hold that made everything harder, I had to deal with blood and super glue, but it was a fun process anyway!”
