Adam Ondra has onsighted yet another 8c+, Chambao, at Baltzola in the Basque country, Spain.
Before heading north to keep exploring the giant Hanshelleren cave at Flatanger in Norway, Adam headed south, hunting for that elusive 9a onsight. This time, things didn't go according to plan as the conditions were what Adam calls 'terribly humid' in his 8a scorecard.
Here is a video of Gorka Karapeto climbing the route.
