Adam Ondra has onsighted Il Domani, 9a, in the Baltzola cave, Basque country.

The most impressive climbing I have ever seen! says Patxi Usobiaga who witnessed the ascent. He should know what he is talking about having onsighted 8c+ himself.

It was also Patxi who made the first ascent of this route in March 2003. Needless to say, this was the first time it has been onsighted.

This was Adam's second 9a onsight after Pirmin Bertle's La Cabane au Canada at Rawyl, which he did in July last year.

He has been training very hard lately trying to reach a level where he more consistently can onsight 9a's and, well, he seems to be getting there...

In two weeks he'll be competing in the Innsbruck Bouldering WC, and then there's the Lead WC. That will be interesting!

Here is a video of Iban Larrion climbing Il Domani a few years ago.
