Stefano Ghisolfi, first 9a+ with Le moustache qui fâche


At Entraygues in France Stefano Ghisolfi has climbed Le moustache qui fâche, his first 9a+.

The other day Italian climber Stefano Ghisolfi made the first repeat of Le moustache qui fâche, a 9a+ put up by Enzo Oddo at Entraygues close to Briançon in France. “With this route I went to the next level” explained Ghisolfi on his FB page, and even if the difference of a + may seem nothing much at first glance, in actual fact it represents a completely different realm of difficulties that few other climbers are capable of entering.

Until recently Ghisolfi had sent five 9a, the first of which just over a year ago at Tetto di Sarre in Valle d'Aosta, and these last 14 months have marked a truly impressive rise towards the top. Especially if you consider the fact that to send the route – short and bouldery with a 10m crux – the Italian needed a mere five days, indicating that the potential for far more is still enormous.

This ascent bodes well for the next competition, the Lead event at the Rock Master which gets underway this Thursday in Arco. No Italian has ever managed to win this legendary trophy and Ghisolfi, after last year's seventh place, is well set to make many an Italian dream.
