Ondra does Geocache 9a+ in a day

Adam Ondra has done a quick one day ascent of Alex Megos' Geocache 9a+ in Frankenjura, which actually took Megos six days and 40 tries.

- Almost did in a couple of tries in the short morning session, but punted really hard on the very top. Then I took a rest and sent it in the evening. Regarding to the grade, I agree with Alex that it is strange route most of all (even though it is very cool and fun to climb). And hard too, but how hard is the question. I am considering that the route fits my style, being tall helps a tiny bit and I feel in a good shape, I guess 9a+ could be OK. But conditions were rather humid, even though it was not 30 degrees as the previous day.

By the way: It was originally rated 9a with Megos using another beta...

I imagine many sequences are very hard if you are under 1,80 cm :D

"I imagine many sequences are very hard if you are under 1,80 cm :D" That one makes my day:)

People have to deal with their shortcomings whether its their lenght size of hand weight overall strenght and stop discredit people who have done hard sends because they have bodys that looks like this or thats

@Andersen & Kral I don't understand. Has this personal revelation a deeper meaning for you both? Maybe the "little-man-syndrome"???
