The video of Adam Ondra attempting Perfecto Mundo, the 9b+ at Margalef in Spain bolted by Chris Sharma, freed by Alexander Megos in 2018 and repeated by Stefano Ghisolfi and Jakob Schubert.

For the time being this is work in progress. Adam Ondra is currently at Margalef in Spain attempting Perfecto Mundo, the 9b+ bolted by America’s Chris Sharma, freed in 2018 by Germany’s Alexander Megos and repeated in the meantime by Stefano Ghisolfi (2018) and Jakob Schubert (2019).

At present Perfecto Mondo is one of only four 9b+ in the world and is only half a grade easier than the world’s two 9c: Silence at Flatanger in Norway and Bibliografie at Céüse in France. This massive overhang at the Racó de la Finestra sector is an immense challenge therefore, also because the 27-year-old Czech has always sustained he’s not particularly good at one and two-finger pockets.



Ondra traveled to Spain after specific training to strengthen his fingers and this video documents his first two days at the crag exploring the complexity of the moves and the enormous stamina required. His first comment? "The route is… perfect, indeed! It is massive and it has a lot of hard moves in a row with very little rest in between. It still feels very intimidating, yet it feels possible." Stay tuned.
