Ondra made the second ascent of First Round, First Minute, 5.15b, in early February 2014. The route took Chris Sharma three years to climb, he fell over 50 times on the last move. Sharma said, “Its a really valuable lessen for me, that no matter how difficult it can be to preserver in some moments, we just have to stay focused and remember that this fight is what makes it all so rewarding in the end.” The climb has only 25 moves.
