Climbing.com reports that Adam Tayler has opened the hardest route in Red River Gorge, Golden Ticket. Regarding the grade, Climbing says 9a? but Adam says that even if it is harder then the other 8c+, „not enough to make the next grade at the red in my opinion.“It is somewhat strange that only some 8 % of the 100 9a´s in the world are located in the USA.
