Adam Ondra on A Present for the Future - F9a/+

Adam Ondra has climbed a new route at Madonna della Rota, close to Brescia, Italy.

A Present for the Future weighs in at F9a/+ and follows a huge roof to gain a technical and vertical headwall.

The roof itself has been described as a Font 7C boulder problem in to a F8c+ route in to another Font 7C boulder problem. This is then followed by the headwall which is reportedly a Font 7A+ boulder in to a F7c+ route. All in all a bit of a monster.

So the route involves... Font 7C boulder problem F8c+ route Font 7C boulder problem Font 7A+ boulder problem F7c+ route How long is this route?!

I'm more confused about how that only equates to 9a/+ At a lower grade a 6c boulder problem followed by a 7c+ route then another 6c problem then a pretty easy bit then a 6c+ route That has got to equate to more than slightly under one grade more than the hardest grade on the climb? doesn't it?

Is this the route's first ascent or who originally led the line?

"Adam Ondra has climbed a new route...". Sounds like the FA to me.

The 8c+ is a horizontal roof and looks short and hard The second 7C boulder problem seems to be 1 move The rest seems about average so yes it is a long route but most of these super hard routes are a bit long nowadays. Got to say tho it does look like a funny line that certainly makes the most of the whole crag. Not just a straight up by any means
