The huge granite cave at Flatanger, Norway is a current climbing hotspot, with top climbers from all over the world hanging out there right now putting up new routes of the highest difficulty.

It didn't take Adam Ondra long to get in on the action (see previous UKC News) and now the young Czech has spent two days bolting his own line, which he estimates might be 9b+.

In this video we see Adam talking about the cave, and also trying the first half of his new super-project.

Good luck Adam!

jeez, pause at 3:01 in. What is that meathook he's holding up?! He's got 5 thumbs. Cool to see some ultra-hard routes going up on granite

We sailed up that coast last summer - there is a long line of huge sea caves (well above the sea nowadays) there - the potential is almost endless. Chris
