Just now, Friday 8 June at 20:30 CET, Adam Ondra fell at the top crux on his long awaited flash attempt of Biographie, 9a+, at Céüse, France.
This means he succeeded in flashing the first part which, as the start crux (8Aish) has become significantly harder after a break, most certainly must be a solid 8c+.
So... although he didn't succeed, I think this was interesting enough to report.
