Adam Ondra’s Hardest Routes In Flatanger

Nice piece by Rannevig Aamodt in Rock & Ice about Adam Ondra’s work this past summer in the Hanshelleren Cave in Flatanger, Norway:

Hours later I was startled awake by Ondra standing like a wet cat in a pool of water in the living room. His curly hair was stuck flat to his face, he was covered in rock dust from head to toe, and his eyes were fiery orbs of excitement. It was 3 a.m. and he just finished bolting two new lines with a couple of hours to spare.

More 5.15s In Norway By Adam Ondra (Again)

It looks like Adam Ondra’s season in Norway has come to an end, but not before he added two more 5.15s up there with the FAs of Hell Racer (5.15a) in Hell and Kangaroo’s Limb (5.15a) in Flatanger.  He comments about the latter on his 8a scorecard:

Another season in this beautiful cave is over for me. Many projects left behind. Left exit version of Kangaroo’s dyno project, the cheater’s one. Dyno specialists, come and try it! I could stick the dyno as a single move, but not very close to link.

At this point Ondra has pretty much lapped the field when it comes to the sheer volume of hard sport routes he has done.

Footage Of Adam Ondra’s FA Of Move

Do not adjust your computer.  This is just how fast Adam Ondra climbs these days.

On a related note:  could anyone else make something like the bottom part of Move look so easy yet have so much credibility when calling it hard 5.14?
