Adam Ondra has made the first ascent of Mamichula, hard 9b, which is a link up of Papichulo, 9a+, and Pachamama, hard 9a+.
Adam repeated Pachamama just the other day and went straight to work on his main objective, the linkup. Prior to making the first ascent, he said he thought it would be a hard 9b or even a 9b+. It seems he went for the former.
From Adam's Instagram:
Craaazy day! It was so windy that I thought it would be impossible to climb. Then it got a little more still...
In the end, I took down this project of Chris Sharma's, I think Mamichula 9b (hard) could be a good name.
Incredible power endurance without any rest.
In this video from the other day, Adam is working the project.
