I wonder what mischief Adam has been getting up to lately?
It must be 3 months since he log an ascent!

You can find some bits on Adam at Joe Kinder's blog http://www.joekindkid.com/

I get the impression he was in Cataluna for 2 or 3 weeks projecting a 9b+ with Sharma, left recently.

Note that, albeit he turned 19 in February, Adam is still attending the last year of high school in Czech Republic. Like in many european countries, high school education in Czech Republic ends at age 19 if you were born in the first 6 months of the year.

really? didn't know that.
I turned 18 in my last year of highschool, birthday in april. am I early? never looked like it..
isn't it to do with the slower pace he's allowed to take?
and more, does it matter?

It kind of matters because I was, incorrectly, under the impression that since summer 2011 he could climb completely fulltime, but it's not the case yet. Hence the fact that his volume of sends hasn't change much since last year.
Not sure whether you are early or not, education takes different time spans in different countries.
For instance, in Italy I'd say that 99% of people start elementary school when they are 6 (5 if born after the summer) and it's 5 years for elementary school, 3 for middle school and 5 for highschool, so you finish highschool when you are 19 (18 if born after the summer). I guess Czechia is the same OR he might be taking longer but it's unlikely.
