Third 9b+ FA by Adam Ondra  (23)
 

Click to Enlarge PictureAdam Ondra has established his third 9b+ FA, Vasil Vasil in Sloup. In total the 20 year old has done 86 routes 9a and harder out of which 21 are 9a+ or harder FA's.

"2 years and 20-25 days on this thing. It is definitely not mega line, it is painful, short and in dirty place. But it was there, I bolted it 5 years ago and I couldn't leave it unclimbed. It is basically one-mover. 7 meters of burly 8b route into hard boulder problem, which is 8B+ on itself for sure. One single move is at least 8B. Very frustrating process of making no progression for long days, but when it finally happened, on super cold sticky day, it felt like nothing. In a short moment it was all over. Short, but LONG awaited moment. I am so happy."

Next year, Adam has said he plans to do the Lead World Cup. In 2009, being 16 years old, he won and this year he was #1 and #2 in the two WC's he entered. National Geographic has appointed him as one of the adventurer of 2013. Click here and then below the picture to vote. (c) Petr Pavlicek
