Adam Ondra has done his Project Hard 9c?
  2017-09-03 00:00:00    
James Riley reports that Adam Ondra has done his Project Hard in Flatanger which Adam previously has say should be the world's first 9c. Apparently they also got in a video and it is about just some ten minutes climb in the specific Ondra speed style, beside taking very long rest in between the different cruxes.

"Basically it's a very unusual climb through a very big, very steep roof. Involving upside down Font 8C crack climbing, one legged bat hangs and lots of 3 dimensional wizardry. You'll see the video soon. Total length of route around 60 meters.

No confirmation on the grade yet, or the name. I guess that will come from Ondra in due course.

Five years ago, the 24 year old did the world's first 9b+ by Change in Flatanger. Later the Czech has done two more 9b+'s out of one has been repeated by Chris Sharma. In total, Adam has now done 20 routes 9b or harder and the runner up in this league is Sharma with eight.

It's ridiculous how Americans responded to the news when you look at supertopo forum. 9 messages so far. Hack, even thread about earthoworms have more messages there. I guess it tells something.

@Kenneth how is that reactinos from here display at instagram?

I think it might be more productive to complain right there...

@Jan V'

I thought you were talking about reactions in general. Not much to "discuss" here I guess, but a lot of reactions and congratulations going on on instagram, which is the only direct source to comment or congratulate Adam.
