As epic-TV announces, the 21-year old Italian Stefano Carnati sends the 16th ascent of the classic in Céüse. For Stefano it was the first route in this grade. The route, first ascented by Chris Sharma in 2001, was long considered the world’s first 9a + route until it lost the title to Alex Huber’s „Open Air“ route. Since Adam Ondra was the only repeater of „Open Air“ so far, this may change as Alex Huber himself suggested „9a“ for his route from 1996.
