Ondra vs France

© Philippe Maurel /

Adam Ondra, who else, has been on a one man rampage through France lately. Here's the short version:

At la Balme de Yenne, he made the 2nd ascent of Shortcut, Mathieu Bouyoud's ~9a. He also onsighted Déclac, 8c.

The day after, at Pierrot Beach, he had a decent day of onsighting, succeeding on Smoke, 8b+, Hérésistance, 8b+/c, and Home sweet home, 8c/+.

Finally, moving on to the Verdon, where he did Pull over, 8c+, 2nd go.
