Ondra makes 2nd ascent of „Il piccolo orso“, 9a?

Adam Ondra (15) has made the first repeat of Stefan Fürst´s Il piccolo orso, at the crag by the same name, in Austria. The route was first redpointed by Stefan Fürst way back in 1992 and has, until now, repelled all repeats. Originally given 8c+, it has since been upgraded to 9a (according to Tirol Routebook). If Adam confirms the grade, this means it rivals Om as the 2nd 9a in the world. According to Naturized he also onsighted Absinth, 8c, and a couple of routes in the 8a+-b-range.
