Can you climb an 8b/+ sport route "no feet"?

The two top climbers Stefano Ghisolfi and Will Bosi asked themselves this question and immediately put it to the test. For their superlative campus experiment, they chose the 8b/+ sport climbing route, appropriately named Gravity Games (8b/+).

When Will Bosi in the recent past bow traveled to Stefano Ghisolfi to visit, they mostly turned their attention to Excalibur. However, during the strong Scot's most recent trip, the Arco test piece was wet and not climbable. Luckily, Local Ghisolfi had made provisions and had already come up with an interesting task: Can you campus an 8b/+ sport climbing route than climb without using your feet? The strong Italian already has a certain amount of experience in this discipline. A few years ago he climbed an 8a+ route using only his hands.
