Weekend warriors extraordinaires

If I were aspiring to make a 9something FA anywhere in Europe, and one day saw a car with Czech licence plates rolling into my town, my heart would sink… just a little. Especially of that project of mine was an ancient one, which hadn't seen a lot of traffic for the last decade or so. Adam Ondra seems to making a habit out of  opening those old projects.A couple of days ago, he did just that at Cornalba, the Italian “crag of the future”, where he made the FA of Goldrake, 9a+, a route bolted by Bruno “Camos” Tassi.”incredible fight! 5th go, an old project on the right of Jedi, unfortunately two chipped holds on the start, but sick route! I am absolutely not sure about the grade, it is notorious dilema – 9a or 9a+. Just the same as so many other routes. But I decided to go for 9a+ with this one since it is pretty much my style and the send was really incredible fight”Meanwhile at Oliana, Maja Vidmar managed to make a very impressive onsight of the 50m Humildes pa casa, 8b+ (originally 8c), a route that previously had only been climbed in this style by Ondra, Sharma and Marin. Not exactly bad company!Sources: 9b, Planet mountain, Kairn, Maja's blog Diesen Artikel inkl. Bilder auf UKClimbing.com anschauen
