Adam Ondra has added another hard climb to his long list of first ascents in 2017.

His new One Slap 5.15b adds a harder start to Stefano Ghisolfi’s One Punch in Arco, Italy.

Ghisolfi said it One Punch was 5.15a, Ondra said it was 5.15a/b and then added a bolt to make it a solid 5.15b. Ondra added the bolt with local route developer Mauro Mabboni, who bolted much of the crag.

Ondra has more ascents of climbs 5.14d or harder than any climber ever. Earlier this year, he made the first ascent of Silence at Flatanger, Norway, as the world’s first 5.15d.
