Adam Ondra's brilliance shows no sign of slowing down as he enters the later years of adolescence, reports kairn.com. On his latest visit to France, Adam spent a Friday 29 January at the amazing Claret near Montpellier (a great crag for routes in the 6c and above grades as anyone who has been there will agree).
He started the day by onsighting Biotop (F8b/8b+) a route previously onsighted by Chris Sharma. He then tackled the stamina route Guerre d'usure (F8c) and managed to onsight that one. Not content with his day's work, Adam decided to have a go at the intense and bouldery Super Samson - a route with a Font7c+ crux! This one also became another onsight F8c to add to his ever-increasing list. As a warm-down, he warmed down by onsighting the thin stamina route Elzevir (F8b+).
Kairn.com reports that Adam is in France working on some projects at a secret spot near Montpellier.
You can see a video of Chris Sharma's ascent of Biotop on Bjorn Pohl's thelowdown blog.Adam in action last month.
