Master at work: watch Stefano Ghisolfi climb “Los Revolucionaros” in Greece


When a craft master encounters a route near (but not quite at) its maximum output, the flux state flourishes.

“The revolutionaries” (5.14d/9a) resides in the Greek sport climbing paradise of Kalymnos. The rank easily puts it up there with some of the most respectable roads in the country, if not the world. Only the most skilled climbers cut his chains.

Good thing Stefano Ghisolfi is one of the best in the industry.

Watch the Olympian dance and fight your way to the top of the stunning limestone line in this sheer clip. And enjoy some sick picture-in-picture action as he manages the headwall near the top of the road.

Duration: 11.5 minutes
