A few hours ago, the Italian Stefano Ghisolfi succeeded in repeating the 9c route bibliography in the French climbing area of Céüse.
True to the motto "Last day, best day", Stefano Ghisolfi climbed one of the most difficult routes in the world today - despite the worst possible conditions on site. The weather in Céüse was not exactly inviting. But the 28-year-old couldn't be prevented from giving everything again on the last day of his trip.
Fortunately, because Stefano Ghisolfi was the first to repeat the sport climbing route freed by Alexander Megos with the magic grade 9c. Stefano Ghisolfi has not yet commented on the degree of difficulty.
Alex Megos immediately congratulates Stefano Ghisolfi on the red point ascent of bibliography (9c).
Should Ghisolfi also propose 9c, it would be the first confirmed 9c route in the world. The Route Silence, which Adam Ondra scored in 2017 and rated 9c, is still without repetition and therefore not confirmed.
Further details on the ascent of Stefano Ghisolfi will be published as soon as possible.
