Andrea Cossu, a videographer based in Torino, Italy, has in the last month or so had the chance to shoot some footage with Stefano Ghisolfi, a young talented climber.
He's 18 and he basically travels to take part in the international competitions, but during his christmas holidays he tried some outdoor boulders. The result was great!
In just 10 days he managed to send a lot of hard problems like:
· second ascent of 'Scheletri nell'Armadio', 8B - Rosta, Torino.
· Gandalf il Grigio', 8B+ - Varazze.
. Gabri Travers, 8B - Cubo, Aosta.
· plus many 8A and more.
Not bad for his first tries on the rocks!!
Here is the first part of Andrea's video, in which he repeats the very first 8A boulder in Italy, 'Icaro', situated close to Torino.
