Master at Work: Watch Stefano Ghisolfi Climb ‘Los Revolucionaros’ in Greece

When a master of the craft meets a route near (but not quite at) his maximum output, the flow-state flourishes.

“Los Revolucionaros” (5.14d/9a) resides in the Greek sport climbing paradise of Kalymnos. The grade easily puts it up there with some of the most respectable routes in the country — if not the world. Only the most adept climbers have clipped its chains.

Good thing Stefano Ghisolfi is one of the absolute best in the biz.

Watch the Olympian dance and weave his way to the top of the stunning limestone line in this unadulterated clip. And enjoy sick picture-in-picture action as he handles the headwall near the top of the route.

Runtime: 11.5 minutes
