    We should start playing a game as soon as somebody sends something hard: Would Ondra flash it?

    is it sad that I don’t find this impressive…what with all the 5.14d onsights happening? Ondra needs to man up…seriously…man up bro.

      Of course the link notes that two of those 14c’s were actually confirmed 14d’s in the Red that Adam gave personal 14c grades for.

        He was not the first person to suggest .14c for both. In fact, the FA of Golden Ticket called it 14c before a few other people gave it a “personal grade” of 14d.

    Ondra is one the few people out there really qualified to say what a 9a or 8C+ is. I think its great what Megos is doing as well. But adam is absolutely impressive on these high grade routes!!!

    Adam’s consistency on 8c+ speaks for itself. He has onsighted the grade on granite, limestone and sandstone and in different crags in five different countries if I am not mistaken.

    I personally find it much more of an achievement to climb a certain grade consistently (either RP, flash or onsight) rather than to be the first one to do it, maybe by having a bit of a lucky day.

    For instance, I really dig Sharma for being the first one to redpoint 9a+ and 9b consistently, thus showing proper progression in his climbing. Or Huber and Rouhling, who were the first to climb various routes graded at least 9a.

    What about frfm? No repeat. First 9b+?

    In an interview Adam says that Chris seems to have given it 9b in the end.
    For what my opinion is worth, I’d be very curious to see repeats (I reckon it would fit Daniel Woods pretty well), same for Jumbo Love (which Woods said he would like to repeat).
