The seventeen year old Czech wonder-climber has done it yet again. This time he hit the crag of Cornalba in Italy where he freed an existing project line named Goldrake, now a stunning F9a+.

As reported on Planet mountain:

"The route in question was bolted years ago by Bruno "Camos" Tassi to the right of the famous testpiece Jedi and had never been freed until Ondra managed to link the moves in an epic battle yesterday. The 17-year old had stated that in some respects Cornalba represents the crag of the future..."
