The other day this resulted in a ground fall when his first piece popped after he foot hold broke. According to by source the landing was "insane" but Adam was lucky enough to escape with bruises.
Anyway, the bruises can't be too bad as he managed to pull off the first ascent of the first 9a on the island, Climb for life a line that he bolted himself.
