EpicTV athlete Stefano Ghisolfi has made a big life change of late, moving to the Northern Italian climbing mecca of Arco with his girlfriend, and fellow climber, Sara Grippo. And it's not just excellent rock climbing the pair enjoy: the quality of life in this picturesque region of Italy is something they've been learning to enjoy. The area offers the best of both worlds for a climber used to the urban environment: loads of excellent training facilities, and access to pristine rock and world class routes. After a quick trip to the amazing Padaro crag with it's panoramic views of Arco and the magnificent Lake Garda, Stefano heads to the Plastic Rock Gym in Rovereto for his last training session ahead of the Italian Lead Championships. After an amazing year on the IFSC Lead World Cup circuit, and an overall 4th place finish, Stefano is keen to show he has the stamina to perform after such an exhausting season. Then we head to Cavareno to watch Stefano crush it with some of Italy's best in his final competition of the season, before a vacation well earned.
