It's barely six months since the last one.

With some of the hardest ever flashes & onsights for recovery in between.

Two 9b+, Ondra should be able to onsight 9a, otherwise we can write him off as a redpoint-specialist...

According to the man himself it breaks down as:

9b/9b+ to a knee bar rest, then 8c+ to ok rest, then 8b to da chains!

Mind bending.

What a great guy.. Spot on..

"Last question: there's been much hype on the internet about both you and Chris trying the route...

Yeah, there has but in truth the two of us just went climbing together. It was a really positive experience, a really friendly atmosphere, we could both learn much from each other. You know, it's much more fun to try a hard route with someone else, isn't it!"

Awesome climbing!

Big question though, what will the grade be if you use a knee pad?

Shoes are just regular Miura's right? No one foot Solution/ one foot Futura combos or other weirdness.

Awesome effort by sharma to scope the line and put the effort into bolting and cleaning the route!

What a great tick by ondra unbelievable achievement.
The pure beast energy seems to of spread through out the climbing world
Guigui ticked trip hop
Sharma got a new 9b (same day or day before?)
Mike adams put up a new stanage 8A
and Tomtom finally finished off the keel

Some one get ondra to create an account so I can wad the fuck out of him!

I love the fact that 8c+ and 8b after 9b/+ is 9b+. Shows how piss the 8th grade is when you're cranking this hard. It's hard to believe that someone has got that good. It seems like yesterday that 9a was still big news!
