It would seem Adam Ondra's visit to Magic Wood was a mere drive-by. Instead he gave some attention to some rock back home at Holstejn, Mor.kras, where he made the first ascent of the 15 move Pata ledovce, ~8C. According to Adam, and not so sursprisingly, it's a power-endurance problem.
On the same day, and at the same crag, he also made the first ascent of the bouldery route Perlorodka, which had been his project since way back.
Adam comments that this is the route he has spent the most time on and that he had thought of it as impossible. It breaks down into the following parts: 8a + no-hand rest + 7C boulder + rest + 8B+ boulder (12 moves) and finally a 7B+ mantle onto the ledge. Adam feels it all adds up to "hard 9a+".
