Stefano Ghisolfi repeats Demencia Senil 9a+ at Margalef
At Margalef in Spain the Italian climber Stefano Ghisolfi has redpointed Demencia Senil 9a+.
Stefano Ghisolfi checks in with a fast repeat of Demencia Senil 9a+, the stern series of single and two-finger pocket testpiece established by Chris Sharma in February 2009 at Margalef and repeated for the first time by Iker Pou in 2010.
In mid-February Ghisolfi travelled to Margalef together with Gabriele Moroni and even though both managed to get past the route's crux, both fell off the last hard moves. With only five days at their disposal time ran out and they were forced returned to Italy empty-handed, but since they were so close to success they booked a flight back to Catalonia this weekend.
Just six days indicates clearly that this is not his limit and, as he himself states, he his now "looking forward to try the next route of the next level, First Round..." He's obviously referring to First Round First Minute, the 9b put up by Sharma once again, once again at Margalef. In the meantime we'll keep our fingers crossed for Moroni's attempts because a little bit of luck never goes amiss.
