Stefano Ghisolfi Sends New 5.15 with The Bow

Watch a video showing the insane crux undercling moves

Stefano Ghisolfi has made the first ascent of The Bow, a new 5.15a at Padaro in Arco, Ital. It’s a linkup of two existing routes that he first sent in 2017: Fine di un’epoca 5.13+ and Omen Nomen 5.14d.

The route name comes from the crux move, which Ghisolfi shared a photo of below; it involves two underclings and a bow downwards in order to traverse. The crux involves 25 powerful moves with no rests.

He sent The Bow during extremely hot temperatures and said he’s now going to re-focus on his other project call Project Eremo at Eremo di San Paolo, which promises to be in the hard 5.15 range.
