A present for the future, 9a/+ FA by Ondra

Yesterday, Adam Ondra made the FA of A present for the future, 9a/+, at Madonna della rota, near Brescia, Italy. The route, the first part of which traverses the roof of a cave, has been described as a 7C into an 8c+ into another 7C, after which you have a 7A+ and a slightly overhanging 7c+ to negotiate. It was cleaned and bolted by the editor of 9b, Ivan Maghella, Beppe Castellini, Adam and Miroslav Ondra.
