Adam Ondra has made thr first ascent of Disbelief 5.15b at Acephale in the Canadian Rockies.
This is the second 5.15 in Canada, the other being Fight Club at Ravens Crag, first climbed by Alex Megos and not yet repeated.
The technical route had Ondra trying hard and he suggests it’s a hard 5.15b.
A few weeks ago, he downgraded Honour and Glory from 5.15a to 5.14d at The Coliseum, also in the Bow Valley.
Ondra has also onsighted a number of 5.14s up to 5.14c.
More to come after Ondra’s Canada trip wraps up.
"Disbelief" 5.15b (9b), probably upper end of the grade. Acephale, Canmore, Canada. It was a crazy day. I almost wanted to give up. After two tries, when I got to the crux move (which is actually a foot move) totally fresh, I would slip off for like 15th time. No light in the end of the tunnel, despite the fact I stuck the move 10 days ago once, only to fall off 2 moves higher. On my 3rd try of the day, I somehow did not slip and did bot fall. I cannot think many other routes where I climbed so close to my limit. @blackdiamond @mytendon ,@lasportivagram @montura_official @gardatrentino @bernartwood
