Just Another Weekend For Adam Ondra

Once again not resting on his success, Adam Ondra went right back to work this weekend in Spain.  Friday he did the 2nd ascent of Chris Sharma’s Fight Or Flight (5.15b) at Oliana and then Saturday he onsighted two 5.14b’s at Cuenca according to 8a.nu.

In Dura Dura follow-up news, 9b has a good interview with Ondra where he touches on a few things including what he learned during the 9 week process of projecting this route:

That after two weeks of working the same route, it is very difficult to make further progress. That was quite suprising to me. The 3rd and 4th weeks on La Dura Dura were completely pointless, I was climbing one level below and no matter how efficiently I climbed, I couldn’t and didn’t progress.

A nice gallery of images of Ondra on the route can be seen here.

    There’s a website called 9B? Is it JUST for Adam and Chris, or can they make a 6A so the rest of us can feel special ;D hehe.

    Short clip of Sharma on Fight or Flight: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g4Zfro4M-Hc

    I think there is more footage in “The Scene”. Will be awesome to see some higher quality footage of Ondra down the road.

    Narc, I prefer your tongue-in-cheek writing style to most other options available =)
