Those who follow Stefano Ghisolfi's or Adam Ondra's social media channels know that the two have started trying Excalibur, a futuristic new project at Drena, not far from Arco. It’s a fierce, short and steep sheet of limestone with minuscule holds. In this latest episode of his Climbing Diaries Ghisolfi discusses details of the route, while bolters Cristian Dorigatti and Morris Fontanari explain how they found the line and how it got its name.
