Adam Ondra: First part of super project completed

© Flatangernytt/Ove Magne Ribsskog

Adam Ondra seems determined to stay at Flatanger, Norway, until the business, his 9b+-project that is, is done. Now he has come one step closer by completing the first pitch, a 9a+ in its own right.

The whole line is around 55 meters and now he has reached the halfway point.

In total, this super crag in the making now has three 8c+'s, all of which Adam has onsighted, two 9a+'s, both of which put up by you know who, as well as plenty of projects.

With perfect granite and good conditions in the summer, I can see no reason why this place won't keep producing cutting edge routes for a long time.

3 8c+ onsights at a single crag is mind blowing. The savagery!

why does he climb with odd shoes, his right is a L.S. solution and his left, a Futura

I suppose it's a fit issue? Mind you he's Adam Ondra so if he were climbing in flippers I'd seriously be considering a visit to a marine sports store...

Sometimes certain moves are easier with a particular shoe - the heel works better on a certain hook, the shoe wedges in a footlock better, the shape allows you to get more from a certain edge etc. So you might find the optimum 'pair' of shoes for a route isn't a pair at all..

That press move at the crux is absolutely hideous looking. ONcredible.
