Adam Ondra is back in his high school class room after yet another trip to Spain. Only the 10 recorded climbs from this trip would have made him #1 in the ranking game. In total, he has registered 1 245 climbs and he has reached 14 000 points, i.e. an average out of his Top-10 of 9b. The 18-year-old is more than 1 000 points, i.e. two grades ahead of the runner up.
