Palindrom 8c OS by Adam Ondra

Thursday, 13 January

Adam Ondra is back in Siurana where he has onsighted Tres tristes triceps (8b) and Palindrom (8c). "Cool line, even though a little morpho. Could be 8b+ if you are tall? Clipping the draws and being tired after King Capella."

In total, the Czech has now onsighted 89 routes 8c and harder but without all his personal grades, it would have been more than 100. This can be compared with the runner up in this list, Piotr Schab with eleven 8c onsights. What possibly makes Adam even more unique is that he has done 800 onsights 8a to 9a. On his latest Insta there is a video where he talks us through onsighting Referendum, which is a sandbagged vertical 8b. No chalk, no quickdraws in place and it was even a bit dirty as it probably had not been tried for many years. In any case, it was the first-ever recorded ascent of the more than 30-year-old route.

Daniel said that it was extremely frustrating to hear the spectators …
