Adam Ondra just keeps going. "Like a truck in the dessert"
as Benny the Cat would put it. Yesterday at Claret, he started off with an onsight of Biotop
, 8b/b+, making it the 2nd onsight of that route after Chris Sharma who did it in 2002. Then he went on the resistance route Gučre d'usure
, 8c, and onsighted that one too. Still feeling fresh, it was now time for Super Samson
, a very bouldery 8c with a crux around ~7C+, and to cool down Elzevir
, 8b+, a crimpy resistance route. So, that makes tow 8c's and two ~8b+'s. All onsight and all the same day. !!!
According to eye witness, Nicolas Nastorg who reported to Kairn
, the climbing went smooth and it seems he was never really pushed.
According to the same source, Adam is in France to try some projects at a secret spot near Montpellier.
Here's a video of Chris making the first OS of Biotop back in 2002.
