Stefano Ghisolfi conquers Queen Line, the first 9b at Arco


At Arco, Italy, yesterday Stefano Ghisolfi made the first repeat of Queen Line, the 9b at the crag Laghel established by Adam Ondra in 2017.

Just a few months after repeating the 9b+ Perfecto Mundo at Margalef in Spain, Stefano Ghisolfi confirmes his amazing form once again by repeating what is like to be the hardest sport climb in Italy, Queen Line. Located at Laghel above Arco, the line was bolted by local Mauro Mabboni and freed by Adam Ondra during one of his Italian incursions in April 2017 and graded 9b.

Ghisolfi and Ondra had worked the route together, and much to his own surprise yesterday Ghisolfi managed to clip the chains. Next objective? Possibly the project immediately next to Queen Line, the route dubbed King Line which could be even harder still…

Today, totally unexpectedly, I did the second ascent of the hardest route in Italy and very first 9b of Arco, The Queen Line, climbed for the first time by @adam.ondra and bolted by Mauro Mabboni. I was very close to falling in every part of the route, even when the hardest section was over, and I had to give my 100% to complete the climb. The route is slightly harder then the other 9b's I climbed, so it's the second hardest route for me just after Perfecto Mundo. Thanks to @sara_grip for the pic and Mauro for bolting this masterpiece and for the video (that is coming soon!). @gardatrentino • • • @thenorthface @lasportivagram @camp1889 @epictv @hrtholds @misuraweb #neverstopexploring @fiammeoromoena #fiammeoromoena • #climb #climbing #steghisati #rockclimbing #klettern #escalade #bouldering #climbing_pictures_of_instagram
