After a long battle Stefano Ghisolfi got a new amazing goal! Last 13rd February the CAMP top climber managed to free Dingo: the super route at Alveare crag in Finale Ligure, Italy, bolted by Andrea Gallo in 1992. The grade? Dingo is “only” 8c+ so it can appear incredible that a not extreme route needed 24 years to be free climbed, considering the modern climbing standard.

But Dingo is an old style climb: a real challenge for Stefano that attempted it for many days, more than all the other 8c+ he has done so far. “Dingo doesn’t fit my ability: that’s the reason I decided to begin this battle… and I finally won”, Stefano explained. “Despite the grade, it was one of my hardest mental and physical challenges”.

We congratulate Stefano for this exciting achievement, got with the Energy harness: the CAMP super comfortable – and affordable too! – best seller that is perfect for all climbers, both champions and enthusiasts.
