According to Alta Montagna, Adam Ondra has made the second ascent of Christian Core's master piece Gioia at Varazze in northern Italy.

Back in February, he was able to do a shorter ~8B-version which starts 7 moves in, but didn't close the deal on the full line which adds another 7 move ~8B start. Then a few weeks ago, he came back, but still couldn't bag it.

Now, however, thanks to perfect conditions, he finally managed to do it

The ~14 move problem was originally given 8C, but since then most have come to the conclusion that it's probably more like 8C+. Apparently, Adam confirms this.

Of course, I will try to get a hold of Adam for a comment.

Big thanks to Ettore Delprino!
