20-year-old Stefano Ghisolfi has climbed the sport climbing route Grandi Gesti at the Grotta dell'Arenauta, Sperlonga, Italy. The route is a French 9A which is the equivalent of an American 5.14D. On his way home from the route, he stopped off at a boulder and flashed the 8B+ K Rock Radio Station. As you do.
