Adam Ondra, L'Avaro 8c+ on-sight


Adam Ondra has achieved the first 8c+on-sight on Italian soil by sending L'Avaro at the Tetto di Sarre (Aosta).

As we wrote in this morning's competition report, Adam Ondra failed to qualify for the finals of the Lead World Cup in Chamonix. The big news obviously isn't this, rather, with slightly more time on hand than originally planned, young Ondra stopped off at the Tetto di Sarre on his way from France to Arco and on-sighted l'Avaro 8c+!

L'Avaro is one of those superbly difficult routes in the Valle d'Aosta established by local Alberto Gnerro in 1998. With circa 40 routes it has all the power-resistance characteristics of a comp rout and in the past it has been repeated by Cristian Brenna, the German brothers Andreas & Christian Bindhammer and recently alos by another Italian powerhouse, Giuseppe Nolasco. 

With his ascent of l'Avaro Ondra has now carried out the first 8c+ on-sight in Italy. This comes after having on-sighted the first 8c in Italy, Nagay at the Covolo.
