Stefano Ghisolfi made the fourth-known ascent of Chris Sharma’s First Round, First Minute (9b/5.15b) in Margalef, Spain yesterday. It was the Italian climber’s second 5.15b ascent, after Lapsus in Andonno, Italy, which he established in 2015.
“I enjoyed all the attempts,” Ghisolfi tells Rock and Ice. “[First Round, First Minute] is a short route and fun to climb, so I was not stressed about this climb. I had no pressure because it was always fun to try it, even when I fell.”
