Shortly after Stefano Ghisolfi moved to Arco, he managed the first ascent of the then first 9a + of the region: Ultimatum. Now there is the video of the seemingly endless roof climbing with 100 trains.

The Route Ultimatum is located in the heavily overhanging Pueblo sector of the Massone crag and connects several existing routes. That explains their incredible length with a total of 110 trains. Just before the successful boarding fell Stefano when trying on the penultimate move. As unpleasant as that is, it was clear that he would soon be climbing the route. At the end of November 2016 the time had come: Arco's most difficult route at the time was born.
