Both athletes descended into the bowels of the earth into the giant Majlis al Jinn Cave to climb the probably biggest roof this planet has to offer.

See video

Possibly the hardest boulder problem in the world, Gioia combines a long sequence of microscopic crimps with a heart-breaking finish. Drawn by the rumors, Nalle Hukkataival traveled to Varazze, Italy to try it.

Nalle makes it look like somewhere in the 6C or 6C+ range, but this is one of the very hardest problems in the world, meaning 8C or possibly 8C+. The grade of Gioia will be discussed for some time yet and further repeats are needed before it can settle, but like Nalle says: Let's remember that Gioia means Joy.
