Stefano Ghisolfi Repeats Change 5.15c at Flatanger

This is only the second ascent of the mega route

Italian climber Stefano Ghisolfi, five-time world cup winner, has made the second ascent of Change 5.15c, first climbed by Adam Ondra in 2012 in the Hanshelleren Cave of Flatanger, Norway. It was the first 5.15c ever climbed.

Ghisolfi spent over an hour to piece the nearly 200-move 55-metre overhanging cave together. Last month, he sent the first pitch at 5.15a/b, but the full route links the first with the second.

This is his second 5.15c after his repeat of Perfecto Mundo in Margalef in December 2018.

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. • •📸@sara_grip • @thenorthface @lasportivagram #foryourmountain @camp1889 @epictv @hrtholds @misuraweb @visittrentino #neverstopexploring @fiammeoromoena #fiammeoromoena @gardatrentino @italiateam @italiaclimbing @frictionlabs • #climb #climbing #steghisati #rockclimbing #klettern #escalade #bouldering #climbing_pictures_of_instagram
