March 15, 2010 – Ondra Crushes 9b in Spain
In an impressive display of climbing mastery, Adam Ondra has quickly repeated Golpe de Estado 9b (5.15b) in Siurana. Ondra had originally tried the route four weeks ago, but a tweaked a tendon forced him to abandon the climb. After resting a few weeks, Ondra returned to Spain and bagged the repeat after only 10 more days of effort. The 16 year-old Ondra has already climbed 34 routes graded 9a (5.14d) or harder with 16 of those climbs being done in the last 12 month. More details here , here and here.
