Ghisolfi and Rogora practice drilling a climbing route - is that going well?

Three of the strongest climbing athletes in the world, Adam Ondra, Stefano Ghisolfi and Laura Rogora have successfully set up a new route. A novelty for Ghisolfi and Rogora. The red point ascent is denied to everyone.

Adam Ondra has already set up some sport climbing routes and is used to setting bolts. However, without experience Laura Rogora and Stefano Ghisolfi. Nevertheless, the three strong athletes got together and set out on a new route together bow eingerichtet.

While Ondra, like the Ghisolfi/Rogora team, made rapid progress with the drilling, the project planning turned out to be a longer procedure than expected for everyone, they didn't even have to redpoint go home. But at the end of the day, the satisfaction of having created a new line prevails.
