Potential 5.15b “La Capella” By Adam Ondra In Siurana

Potential 5.15b “La Capella” By Adam Ondra In Siurana

According to his 8a scorecard Adam Ondra has done the FA of La Capella in Siurana, Spain after 9 days of work.  On the scorecard he comments that the bouldery route “could be 9b (5.15b), but I am not sure at all…time will tell.”  The website 9b has a nice compilation of photos of the route and you can see old footage of Ondra working the route at the beginning of this video.

This route gives Ondra 9 5.15a or harder routes, 4 of which are first ascents.  Not bad for a kid who celebrated his 18th birthday just a couple of weeks ago.

    Jeez only 9 days? Imagine what would would happen if he spent months projecting stuff like Sharma did. Also gets me psyched to get out and push my own limits more.

    Surely its time for Chris to let Adam have a go on his projects, Big Up were trying to document the ‘progression’ of climbing as a sport with Chris and Adam is clearly the one pushing the boundaries.

      You’re right. I can’t believe those Big Up guys cut out Ondra from Progression, especially the fight scene where Sharma tries to rip off Adam’s fingers.

      News flash – Ondra has a film crew and it’s not Big Up, he was a featured climber in Progression, and Sharma opened up FRFM and some other projects 6 months ago…

      But keep drinkin’ the haterade

      Yeah, Adam now has a third as many 9b FAs as Sharma, get the f**k out of here Chris, you’re worthless.

      Or, we can appreciate that they both crush absurdly hard and hope that we continue to see high quality footage of both of them.

    Hey, i’m not hating, but those routes are still red tagged and Adam is only a teenager and he’s consistently getting better. I wasn’t actually talking about that film in particular but i’m just against red tagging period, i don’t really care about these guys really

      Unless you’ve been to Spain recently and talked with Chris how do you know “those routes are still red tagged”?

          sharma has tons of projects all over the place that he put up for anyone. He put up a ton of super hard routes in china and left, tons of hard projects in spain, he also mentioned in an interview recently there being a hard line next to realization that he could do every move on but not in one go and was excited to see if someone else could do it. FRFM is one route, by his house that means a lot to him, its not as if there aren’t a bunch of potential 9b’s for ondra to go get. Infact i saw a vid recently of ondra and he’s trying a sharma route (9a i think) and gives up as it involves too much dynamic movement or something like that – some of chris’s routes may just not be ondras style at all and thats it really

            It was “Three degrees of separation”, 9a by Chris, Ceuse, I think.
            “some of chris’s routes may just not be ondras style” – yes, and conversely, naturally.
