Martin Stranik sends To tu jeste nebylo (9a)

22 May 2023

Martin Stranik, #2 in the Boulder WCH in 2007 and #4 in the Lead WCH in 2021, has repeated Adam Ondra's To Tu Ještě Nebylo (9a) in Labské údolí. "Hardest route on CZ sandstone! Tried occasionally the last years and this spring focused on it more and did it on my 4th session. So cool route, intense 17m of climbing without rest." (c) Jan Simanek

What is the route's background?
Germans bolted from the top, which is against the rules, then bolts were removed and Ondra Beneš started bolting from the ground. He put three bolts and then Adam [Ondra] added the 4th bolt. Adam made the FA and the others ascents are: Alex Megos, Felix Neumarker and Ondra Beneš.

What are your competition plans this year?
All lead WC, Prague and Brixen boulder WC ;)
