8c+ (9a) by Adam Ondra & Bock

NUMBERS

22 September 2008

Adam Ondra has done two 8c+'s in Frankenjura, Planets Collide and Matador which Markus Bock put up in 2007 and suggested 9a for. Adam says, "in my opinion more 8c+ than 9a, but others should feel free to say more about grade". He also did Showdown, 8c "Stiff grading from nineties, I was very lucky". Earlier this month Markus put up yet another 9a in Frankenjura, Life's Blood For The Downtrodden.
