The pitch grades are: 7c, 8a, 8b, 8a+, 7c+, 7c, 7a/b, 7b+, 7b, 7b, 6b+, creating a 400m route of exceptional difficulty. And although the grades are well established, Ondra commented on the 8a.nu site:
“The pitches are not as hard as claimed in my opinion.”
Two days after his epic on-sight of Hotel Supramonte, Adam then went on to make the first ascent of Campo Con Corvi (F9a), also in Sardinia, making this his twelfth route at the F9 grade.
