Ondra climbs Action directe, 9a

Adam Ondra has succeeded on yet another super classic, this time THE super classic, WoGu´s masterpiece Action directe, the first and benchmark 9a. Adam needed 15 attempts + 15 unsuccessful jumps, which must mean this is the route he´s has had to work the hardest for. Earlier Adam said to Czech Climbing that the route is terribly powerful for him and that one long jump (presumably the jump at the start) seemed too hard for him. As it seems, he was wrong. This was the 15-year-old´s 8th 9a-or-harder in the last 12 months.Photo courtesy of Czech Climbing.There´s also a video onEuroclimbing. There´s a lot of grunting going on, but I must say it doesn´t look like he´s anywhere near his limit…
