Stefano Ghisolfi has made the second ascent of "Change" 9b+. This historic route is the world's first 9b+ sport climb, established by Adam Ondra in the Flatanger Cave, Norway.

"Change 9b+ The battle is over, unexpectedly soon, a mental and physical fight that took me more than one month and two trips to Flatanger, it ended today with a bloodbath lasted more than one hour of climbing to complete the 185 moves and 55m of Change, the very first 9b+ in the world, bolted and climbed only by Adam Ondra in 2012. I feel relieved, tired and happy, and I enjoyed everything it came with this amazing (and frustrating) journey. Thanks to Sara as always, to all the people who took part in this process, and to all the people who cheered me up today during the endless climb."

Stefano Ghisolfi gets the second ascent of "Perfecto Mundo", a steep mono pockety route bolted by Chris Sharma and first sent by Alex Megos in Margalef, Spain.

'Demencia Senil' (9a+/5.15a), was first established by Chris Sharma in 2009. It is a  steep roof climbed almost exclusively on small, sharp pockets. The brutal nature of the climbing means that it has seen relatively few repeats and even fewer since a crucial hold was broken. Stefano Ghisolfi succesfully repeats "Demencia Senil"

Italian strongman Stefano Ghisholfi makes the fourth ascent of Chris Sharma's 9b 'First Round, First Minute' in Margalef, Spain, back in January, his second 9b after establishing Italy's first, Lapsus, in 2015.
