Adam Ondra has made the first ascent of Mamichula at Oliana, which he calls his hardest 9b ever.

The route is a linkup of Papichulo, 9a+, and Pachamama, hard 9a+, where the actual linking section is the hardest and, according to Adam clocks in around 7C+/8A boulder. Hard wind and cold temps didn't make things any easier.

And now he's very close the the second ascent of Sharma's Neanderthal at Santa Linya. He'd done most of the hard climbing when a foothold broke. Once he's done that seems like he'll have very little to do at 9b in Europe at least. El Bonne Combat and Lapus in Italy. Pretty incredible record.
