A funny thing happened earlier this week: Adam Ondra “finally” repeated Biographie1 in Céüse and barely anyone seemed to notice.
You’ll recall that his initial efforts to flash the route two years ago brought the climbing internet to a standstill as we got text and Facebook updates from people at the cliff. My how the times have changed though as it took until this morning for even one of the major climbing websites I follow to post about it. Then again, in the intervening two years Ondra has onsighted three 5.14ds and five 5.14cs, so maybe redpointing mere 5.15a isn’t that big a deal any more?
