On November 2, 2015, Italy's Stefano Ghisolfi made the first ascent of Lapsus at Andonno, giving it a grade of 9b. If this grade is confirmed by repeaters, it will go down as Italy's first ever 9a sport route. With a rich climbing tradition dating back to the 1980's, Andonno has a history of Italian firsts, with the country's first 8c+ Noia put up by Severino Scassa on February 14 1993, just four days before Stefano's own birth. For Italy's first 9a, Stefano links Noia with the top section of 8c Anaconda to make his 9b super route. It this Episode of Choice Cuts, Stefano talks us through his year long project on Lapsus, and how he arrived at the grade.
