Excalibur*** 6a
[Tony Woods on Excalibur (5+) Sa Gubia, Mallorca, 3 kb]50m, 2 pitches.

Rockfax Description
A superb climb following the fine line up the curving ramp and corner above. Excellent and varied climbing as long as you don't expect a normal clip-up. 1) 6a. Follow the curving ramp clipping some bolts on other routes. At its end pull over the bulge and belay. 2) 6a. The V-corner leads past two overlaps to the top.
2a) 6b. A poor right-hand finish is possible. © ROCKFAX

I followed pitch one and lead pitch 2. Pitch 1 was quite runout in our opinion. I especially liked the end of the 2nd pitch. Felt qiute exposed. I think this route really deserves its 3 star rating.
