Ondra - 2 Font 8B Flashes In A Day

Adam Ondra has flashed two Font 8B boulder problems in a single day at the South African bouldering area of Rocklands.

"Adam had successfully flashed The Vice, 8B and Armed Response, 8B. This is perhaps the first time that someone has successfully flashed 2 8B's in one day! Just to prove what a superb climber he really is he then went and flashed Out of Balance 8A, Pendragon 8A and Oral Office 8A+."

He spends most of time at school! What will he be like when he starts climbing full time?

Astounding. I think we're starting to really see the potential of the next generation of talented and hard-working young climbers come through. Very inspiring for an old man!
