Adam Ondra onsights 8c+ at Acephale in Canada

At Acephale in Canada Adam Ondra has onsighted the 8c+ sports climb First Fligh

Czech climber Adam Ondra is currently on a month-long climbing trip to Canada where, despite being plagued by rainy weather, he has managed to climb a significant number of hard routes during the first fortnight. These include onsights of Endless Summer 5.13d (8b) and Existence Mundane 5.14b (8c) and, more recently, the same-day onsights of First Flight 8c+ and Ojas 8b+, all at Acephale close to Canmore

The 25-year-old has travelled to Canada with Fight Club in mind, the 20-year-old project at Ravens Crag freed by Alexander Megos in 2016 at 9b. Knowing Ondra and his insatiable appetite for pushing the limits, he will attempt to climb the route as quickly as possible. With 9a onsight, 9a+ flash and 9c redpoint to his name, it will prove extremely interesting to see how and in what style Ondra will go about trying to repeat Canada's hardest sport climb.
