Adam Ondra on Lapsus, 9b, Andonno, Italy, 7 kbAdam Ondra has made the second ascent of Stefano Ghisolfi's Lapsus, 9b, at Andonno, Italy.

He then went on to repeat Matteo Gambaro's Perfect Man 2.0, 9a, at Castelbianco later the same day. He did it 2nd go.

That's two 9b's, one 9a+ and one 9a in three days, one of which I think was a rest...

How many existing 9b's has he not done? (excluding un-climbed projects of course)

I think it's maybe 4: Neanderthal, which he nearly did earlier this year. El Bonne Combat at 9b/+, Jumbo Love in the US, Fight Club in Canada.

There is also Akira though unconfirmed, chipped, and possibly more of a boulder problem. And two-ish? boulder-routes in Spain.

There's also a couple of slash grade routes. Marina Superstar he gave a slash grade to because he didn't want his first 9b to be downgraded. And then there's Megos's Supernova which he gave a German grade of 11+. Theoretically when converted to French it's also 9a+/b.

Another day and another couple of 9's. First he did a new 9a+, Naturalmente, a project tried a few weeks back. Then he did a fourth go ascent of a new 9a, Terza Eta.

Interesting to see how he gets on on the BD project. He's certainly in a class of his own.
