Wonderland 9b FA by Adam Ondra in Arco

Adam Ondra reports on Insta that he has done the FA of Wonderland in Arco saying it is probably a hard 9b or 9b/+ "(if you like slashgrades)". It was originally bolted by Alfredo Webber and then Adam found a new start and added some bolts last autumn. As it stands, Wonderland is probably the hardest route around Arco. (c) Petr Chodura

It should also be mentioned that Adam a few days ago repeated Il Guerriero del futuro (9a) in Covolo. "At first 8c+, something broke, then it was 8c+/9a, something broke and it was not repeated until now. Proper 9a I think at the moment. Tried it many years when it used to be 8c+/9a and got very close."

The 29-year-old has now done 190 routes 9a and harder out of which 25 routes 9b to 9c. The runner-up on that 9b list is Stefano Ghisolfi with ten. Currently, they are both working on establishing a new hardest route in Arco.
