Fight or flight, 9b, by Matty Hong

Matty Hong has repeated Chris Sharma's Fight or flight, 9b, at Oliana, Spain. This was Matty's first of the grade and the fifth ascent in total after Sharma, Adam Ondra, Jakob Schubert and Sachi Amma.

Counting all climbs, Matty's hardest ascent before this was probably Daniel Woods' Warrior up, ~8B+/C, at Mt Evans from back in 2012 and for the last few years he has focused more and more on lead climbing.

Here's Adam Ondra's second ascent.
