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.

Although the flash inspection didn't work, it did Stefano Ghisolfi already mastered in his first session at the Burden of Dreams Replica three moves in a row. That doesn't sound like much at first, but it's quite a challenge, after all, this is 60 percent of the most difficult boulder in the world. Will Bosi, who was already in his ninth session on the 9A duplicate, was blown away by Ghisolfi's performance. Speaking of away: After Will Bosi had collected all the individual trains, he packed his things and flew straight to Finland. It's serious.
