[VIDEO] The grade: all about point of view
9a+ for Ghisolfi and Hau28 August 2020
Two videos have just been released from Hau and Ghisolfi.
Stefano, who is still in Flatanger, has clipped the first chain of Change, 9a+/b. If you are asking it, the answer is yes: Change is the 9b+ by Adam Ondra. 9b+ or 9a+/9b? Both. The P1 is 9a+/b. Then, if you want to climb the Adam's creation, you have to climb another 9a and it becomes 9b+. Definitely hard.
Hau has climbed Sacrifice in June and his story is a little bit different than Stefano. It is his first 9a+ and he is the first Canadian climber to climb a 9a+. Anyway, Sacrifice has the FA signed by Ondra, so the grade are really pretty similar.
For Hau, a cool video has been released on Mellow channel, while for Stefano, a video on IG TV has been enough. A lifetime story vr just a part of a process: this is why we love climbing!
