Adam Ondra, who is focusing more on bouldering this fall, has paid a visit to the famous forest of Averstal, Graubünden, Switzerland that is known as Magic Wood.
Although the conditions weren't ideal, in usual Ondra style, he managed to crush most of what he touched, and his week-end ticklist includes problems like:
Practice of the wild, 8C (FA, Chris Sharma)
Dark matter, 8B+/C (FA, Dai Koyamada)
Remembrance Of Things Past, 8B+ (FA, Daniel Woods)
He also had enough time left to do four 8A+'s and an 8A.
22 October Adam will join Paul Robinson, Dmitry Sharafutdinov, Daniel Woods and Andy Gullsten for the La Sportiva legends Only. Whether he will have any time to do all the projects around Stockholm remains to be seen, but he certainly doesn't seem to need a lot of time.
With any luck, there will be some comments from the man shortly.
