Stefano Carnati is the perfect climber at Castelbianco


Italian climber Stefano Carnati has repeated Perfect Man 2.0, the difficult sport climb at Castelbianco, Albenga, freed in 2016 by Matteo Gambaro. A few days earlier at Andonno he repeated Noia, Italy’s first 8c+.

A dozen attempts scattered over three days is what Stefano Carnati needed to send Perfect Man 2.0, an old project bolted by Andrea Gallo back in 1992 and freed in 2016 by Matteo Gambaro at the crag Castelbianco in NW Italy.

Carnati, who personally considers the route to be 8c+/9a, has now redpointed 49 climbs 8c or harder and is therefore about to reach the 50 mark… a remarkable performance, especially if you consider the fact that the 19-year-old isn’t a pro climber and that, untile six months ago, he could hit the crag only once a week.

His hardest climbs include the repeat of the 9a+ Goldrake at Cornalba, Action Directe 9a in Germany’s Frankenjura, and his recent redpoint of Italy’s first 8c+, Noia at Andonno, freed by Severino Scassa in 1993.
