15th 8c+ onsight by Adam Ondra

Adam Ondra has onsighted his 15th 8c+, Chambao in Baltzola. "Super guapa, but being flexible, it could be a little easier... 9a was postponed due to terrible humidity...I will be back." The runner up in this 8c+ onsight ranking has done one including Alexander Megos 9a. It should also be noted that Adam, last autumn, onsighted two confirmed 9a's in Red River Gorge giving them a personal grade of 8c+. After he comes back to Spain he is going to Flatanger in Norway so we are talking about a total of at least 50 hours of travelling with a car, until he can start looking for a future 9c project.
