Adam Ondra has onsighted Chris Sharma's Mind control, 8c+, at the home of the big rigs, Oliana, in Catalunya. As far as I know, this was the 6th ascent of the route.

Things didn't begin so well though as the weather was bad and the whole crag was soaking wet....
After working the upper part of Chris Sharma's Chaxiraxi-project for a bit, and being unable to try the 9a start that links into the ~9a/+ finish, he decided to have a go at Mind control, which wasn't dry either, but this didn't stop him from succeeding anyway.

Next on the list is an onsight attempt on Blankita, 8c+, and the first part of Chaxiraxi.

Again, Adam proves he has reached a new level of onsighting, where 8c+ is nothing out of the ordinary. If he sticks to his plan not to compete in the World Cup, his would be competitors should perhaps consider themselves lucky...
