It's almost like being knighted to be invited into the Wide Boyz's crack torture chamber. Stefano Ghisolfi made a pretty good trap during his visit to the legendary cellar. But was it enough to claim the title of strongest crack climber?
We have known since Excalibur at the latest: Stefano Ghisolfi is in top form. And since his king line in Arco requires a lot of maximum strength, the Italian climbing pro has plenty of power when bouldering. He demonstrated this impressively during a visit to Sheffield, where he attempted to flash the Burden of Dreams replica.
Sheffield is the UK's climbing epicentre. Legends like Jerry Moffatt or Ben Moon have left their mark on the surrounding climbing areas. It is precisely this test piece that Adam Ondra uses in his homage to the 90s climbing film The Real Thing.
Adam Ondra is undoubtedly the strongest climber of his generation. But how does he compare to the best before him? To find out, Magnus Midtbo brought the Czech over-climber together in Sheffield with two '90s climbing legends: Ben Moon and Jerry Moffatt.
