The best onsighting kids

EDITORIAL

18 June 2021

Adam Ondra is the best climber in the world and the discipline he is most superior in is onsights. When he was a kid and a teenager, his focus was onsight and I always try to tell the talented youngsters and their parents that they should opt for onsights rather than projecting one route for months. Here is the Top-10 onsight for kids. Below is another ranking based on adding 200 extra points per year born 2004 later, and also adding 1 000 points for girls.

12 320 Iziar Martinez-05
12 170 Gianluca Vighetti -08
11 720 Maho Normand -05
11 720 Olivia Ma -05
11 618 Illya Bakhmet-Smolenskyi -05

Another teenager sticking out is Alex Totkova -05, who has onsighted three 8a+'.
