Adam Ondra Visits Flatanger Cave

In what is now pretty much a standard day for Adam Ondra he visited the cave at Flatanger, Norway and came away with an onsight of a 5.14c and the FA of a potential 5.15a/b according to 8a.nu.  The 5.14c was the route Eye Of Odin which was opened just the other week by Ethan Pringle.

Update:  8a.nu also reports that Ondra has onsighted Jorg Verhoeven’s route Nordic Flower which is also in the cave at Flatanger.  Verhoeven suggested 5.14d for the route, but after onsighting it while hanging the draws Ondra has bravely and humbly suggested 5.14c.

    It’s incredible how unremarkable this news is.

        I mean that Ondra is making the remarkable seem unremarkable . . .

    GDavis – Doh! Totally blew that burn, man. I imagine you were envisioning something more along the lines of “So unremarkable you chose to remark on it”?

    And while we’re on the subject, Dan, you do realize that’s how the original post was supposed to go, right? in order to inoculate yourself against such burns.

    Ah, the lost art of word play…

    BLNT, chimps
