Just one day after his first ascent of La dura, dura, 9b+, at Oliana, Adam Ondra made the 2nd ascent of Chris Sharma's Fight or flight, 9b, at the same crag.
Looking at what Adam has done during the last 6 months, I would say there is no doubt he has now clearly stepped into the next realm. What that is and what it means for the future of climbing is of course anyone's guess.
Hopefully others will be motivated by seeing what's possible and follow in Adam's footsteps, but if, or rather when, this happens is quite impossible to say. Perhaps Chris Sharma can repeat La dura dura today, or maybe Perfecto mundo one of his other mega projects falls first.
The only thing one can say with any kind of certainty is that the future is looking bright and interesting!
Stay tuned for Adam's thoughts about his latest ascents and more.
