Recently Adam Ondra onsighted Il Domani, 9a, in the Baltzola cave. This was his second onsight of the grade and he considers it to be his hardest so far. Two is obviously not enough, so Adam went to Valdegovia to try and make it three.
Being technical, powerful and rather short, only 16 meters, Psikoterapia is not very similar to Il Domani, and this time Adam didn't have the necessary luck to succeed, though by the looks of it he was very close.
Desnivel has an interview (in Spanish) where Adam talks about his onsight of Il Domani, competitions and why he is now being coached by Patxi Usobiaga.
