Adam Ondra seems determined to stay at Flatanger, Norway, until the business, his 9b+-project that is, is done. Now he has come one step closer by completing the first pitch, a 9a+ in its own right.
The whole line is around 55 meters and now he has reached the halfway point.
In total, this super crag in the making now has three 8c+'s, all of which Adam has onsighted, two 9a+'s, both of which put up by you know who, as well as plenty of projects.
With perfect granite and good conditions in the summer, I can see no reason why this place won't keep producing cutting edge routes for a long time.
