Youth onsight ranking - VIP


Monday, 3 August

Adam Ondra is the best climber in the world and especially when it comes to onsights, he is totally superior. In 2005, the year he turned 12, he onsighted 8 routes 8b and 19 8a+. In order to stimulate and order to credit the youngsters focusing on onsight, here is the Top-10. Noteworthy is that Ondra's score being 12-years-old was 12 420, would have made him #3 in 2020! An onsight gives 147 bonus points, i.e. almost three grades extra.

1. Maho Normand 2005 - 11 614: #1 also based on Top-50, in the picture.
2. Tanguy Merard 2003 - 11 554
3. Illya Bakhmet-Smolenskyi 2005 - 11 458

Systematic Devaluing ethics

Debate/Jens: In trad climbing you are not allowed to have the gear or quickdraws in place and it was also like this in the beginning of the sport climbing era.
