Climb for life, 9a FA by Adam Ondra

Adam Ondra has left the cold of the far north of Norway for the considerably nicer weather of Sicily, Italy, where he attended the San Vito climbing festival.

Personally, I think it was at the nick of time he left the north, as he had started to try onsighting loose traditional lines in virgin territory and according to a source very close to Adam he... well let's just say there are people who are better at placing trad gear. The other day this resulted in a ground fall when his first piece popped after he foot hold broke. According to by source the landing was "insane" but Adam was lucky enough to escape with bruises.

Anyway, the bruises can't be too bad as he managed to pull off the first ascent of the first 9a on the island, Climb for life a line that he bolted himself.
