Adam Ondra

Adam Ondra, must be one of the most impressive sport climbers in the world. He's climbed over fifty routes at 8b and above, including ten at 8c and two at 8c+. At the ripe old age of 13 (born in 1993) he's number 19 in the rankings. Not bad for someone who started climbing up ropes when he was knee high to a grasshopper.

Now on school break the last two weeks he has onsighted two 8b+'s: "Kalea borroka in Siurana and another one in Monsant, he also onsighted 3 8b routes: Golpe de gas wich Adam thinks is more like 8a+, Hidrophobia, downgraded from 8b+ to 8b and Ramadan" reports Adam also redpointed La leccion, 8c+ in Terradets and La llarga traversia del cpita encia, 8b+. "

From Brno in the Czech Republic, Adam has previously redpointed Wall Street 8c in the Frankenjura (Germany) and Alien Carnage 8c+ at Castillon in France.
