The route is called Palestina and Adam fell just a couple of moves before easy ground.
According to 8a.nu:
"In total Adam has onsighted 17 routes graded 8c+ but three of them he gave a personal grade of 8c. The runner up in the onsight stat are Usobiaga and Ramonet with one (1) 8c+ onsight."
Did we just read that right? Ondra has onsighted 17 8c+s!
Adam made a fast redpoint of the 9a Palestina a couple of days after his failed onsight attempt (of course).
