After his 4 8c+ onsights , Adam Ondra decided redpointing was on the menu. At Santa Ana in Catalunya, he got to work and rather swiftly made the first ascent of an old Dani Andrada project in the huge overhang in the Paret del vent sector.

The new route is an extension to Obrint pas extension, 8c+, and adds some very technical and physical climbing to this 30m route.

Adam needed two days and a grand total of 5 tries to make the first ascent of Obrint el sistema, which he feels warrants 9a+ or so.
