Santa Linya climbing sweepstakes by Adam Ondra

07.02.2008 by Planetmountain

Adam Ondra (15) has made swift work of "Novena enmienda" 9a+ and "Fuck the system" 9a and on-sighted "Digital system" 8c.

Spanish Santa Linya is the place to be at the moment, with some of the world's best sports climbers currently testing their stamina on the cave's mammoth outings.

Crag keeper Dani Andrada reports on his blog about the impressive Spanish action, in particular about the "mutantes jovenes" Adam Ondra who yesterday made an incredible one day, third attempt redpoint of "Fuck the system" 9a. This came about the previous day's on-sight of "Digital system" 8c and redpoint of the super link-up "Novena enmienda" 9a+... Mutantes jovenes for sure!

A fortnight ago the 15 year old made the first ascent of "Shengen" 11- (8c+/9a) at his home crag Sloup in the Czech Republic, and by the looks of things the only thing stopping Ondra at the moment from moving up a grade higher are his school commitments! But since he's in the company of Chris Sharma, Edu Marin and Dani Andrada, no doubt we'll be hearing more from Santa Linya soon.
