Jorgeson’s Ambrosia Highball Repeated By 15 Year-Old Enzo Oddo

Ambrosia (V11), the tall line on the south face of the Grandpa Peabody boulder at Bishop’s Buttermilks made famous by Kevin Jorgeson’s FA in Progression, saw its 4th ascent yesterday at the hands of a visiting French phenom. ¬†According to multiple sources including Prana’s blog 15 year-old Enzo Oddo repeated the problem after toproping the upper part of the line and following the direct start first used on the 3rd ascent by Isaac Caldiero.

Here’s some video of Oddo’s ascent:

    This is by far the proudest send I’ve ever heard of. He walks up it like it’s V0. This is more impressive than any 9a route he’s ever done and when I first saw it, I simply didn’t believe it.

    I like Enzo’s semi-mullet. Excellent throwback to the times of JB Tribout

    Very impressive. What makes this particularly interesting to me is the fact that this kid not only is strong enough to send Realization (or Biographie) but he’s also BOLD. Seeing how, like Ondra, I doubt he’s anywhere near reaching his limit yet, this could lead to some pretty ridiculous stuff.

      Yeah, particularly impressive for a 15 year old to climb something requiring that much mental control and committment.

        Brave parents too. Trusting your son on a climb with so much commitment.

    You know the climber is good when you watch him climb something ridiculously difficult and think: “psh, I could do that…”

    Hadn’t the original sequence broken? Didn’t the large left foot break?

    There was indeed a large foothold break (first reported by Sonnie Trotter if I’m not mistaken) and I believe it is the first ascent since, a bit similar to his first post-break ascent of Realization.
