Ghisolfi has confirmed the grade Ondra suggested in 2012 and, as such, has brought his 9b+ tally to two, following his repeat of Perfecto Mundo at Margalef in Spain at the end of 2018. Furthermore, Ghisolfi has climbed six 9b’s and his ascent of this coveted testpiece, just when the sending season seemed all over, is further demonstration of his immense talent and unerring perseverance.
