Christian Core on Gioia (V15/16?)


More than two years ago, Italian climber Christian Core climbed one of the hardest boulder problems in the world, Gioia ("Joy" in English), and gave it a tentative grade of 8c, or V15. The problem is still unrepeated today despite being attempted by Daniel Woods, Adam Ondra, Chris Webb Parsons, Dai Koyamada, and numerous other strong climbers with many questioning if the problem might not actually be V16. This exclusive FREE download is available only at Also includes some insight and philosophy from Christian as well as some footage featuring his wife Stella Marchisio, who is also a very strong climber herself. Hope you enGIOIA this video.
