Mandela superstar 8a for Stefania Daniele
Stefania Daniele has repeated Ruby 7c+ (La curva di Gabbio), Fearstruck 7c (Sezze), Mandela superstar 8a (Gabbio).
After a 45 day lay-off due to ripped knee ligaments Stefania Daniele from Rome has returned to the crags and, in a three week period, climbed Ruby 7c+ at the Gabbio, Fearstruck 7c at Sezze and, above all, Mandela superstar 8a at the Gabbio.
Stefania states "it's considered a soft-touch 8a, but psychologically demanding due to the long run-out. Then again, I'm happier with the way I actually sent the route than the route itself."
