4 July 2022

Adam Ondra has done the FA of Hogo fogo (9a) in Deravá skala. "Probably THE line of this forgotten cave! Awesome tensiony short power endurance climbing in the roof. Upper end 9a? harder start(s?) to be done."

In total, the 29-year-old has now logged 195 routes 9a to 9c and if it was not for all his personal grades, his list would have included well over 200. The runner-up on this list is Alex Megos who is getting close to 100.
