Nope, 5.14d Still Hasn’t Been Onsighted…But It Won’t Be Long

There’s been a lot of tongue twisting in the climbing news-osphere about Adam Ondra‘s recent FA of Joe-cita (5.14d) in Oliana, Spain.  While he did climb that specific line on his first try, he had previously climbed a portion of the link-up while climbing other routes.  Granted, he did either onsight or flash the harder parts, but  rules are rules.  He also came close to onsighting Duele la Realidad 2R (5.14d) but had to settle for a 2nd go send.

I Flashed That On My 3rd Redpoint Shot Of The Day…

Australian photographer Simon Carter has a nice dispatch from Catalunya that includes some of his usual amazing pictures and a brief note on how public perception of how quickly things are being sent over there doesn’t always meet reality:

I first noticed something strange when a climber sent a route second time that they were on the route that day, and their ascent was reported in the media as “second go”, yet the detail about them having been on the route the previous year didn’t make it through to the news report.
