Adam Ondra, new 9b in Siurana


Adam Ondra has made the first ascent of La Capella 9b at Siurana, Spain.

Adam Ondra from the Czech Republic has recently returned to Siurana where he managed to come up trumps with La Capella, a route comprised of three intense boulder sections to the left of Jungle Speed which now weighs in at 9b.

Ondra's success came about after a nine day effort spread out over two trips (7 days this year and 2 last year) and this is now his hardest ever first ascent and second 9b overall. His first 9b was in Siurana once again, on Chris Sharma's Golpe de Estado - the first time ever a 9b had been confirmed.

After the Christmas break Ondra recently repeated the 8B+ boulder problem Prsty v ohni at Petrohad in the Czech Republic, proving that he's on fine form and on track for his most important appointment this season: the IFSC Climbing World Championships due to held this July in Arco, Italy.
