Adam Ondra first time in U.S.A.

" Adam Ondra boards a plane tomorrow for the Red River Gorge.

All hard routes are currently in a state of DEFCON 1 meaning that absolute annihilation is imminent.

There's been much speculation on the internet message boards about exactly how much domination will occur.

Many agree that the world's first 5.14d onsight is a possibility... unless the Kentucky Bourbon gets him first.

Good luck Adam! "

Ondra was out at the Lode yesterday and sounds like he OS Omaha Beach.

He was asked what he thought of the climbing mid route by another climber in the Madness cave and responded that the climbing was big jugs down low and uninteresting up top. LOL.

Welcome to the Red."

It's not so " Hard to believe it, but it is true! two days ago felt bad, didn't know what to climb as I wanted to save onsights/flashes for another year, and now this came! thanks everyone for the beta and good vibes, moment I will never forget. Everything went so perfect. 9a benchmark I'd say."


Flash.
After 9a 2nd go , the first 9a flash.

According to his 8a scorecard, Adam, "still super happy" for his change, was "miles away" from onsighting Lucifer (he climbed it on his fourth try) and his witnessing Ashima sending it was "one of the most most impressive things I have ever seen."

A report directly from Adam.

Yesterday, an hour after onsighting Pure imagination, Adam onsighted The Golden ticket, "high end 8c+":

this could (?) mean, technically, the first 8c+/9a onsight in sport climbing history.

Adam and his friend the drill created a new line.

It seems hard, a lifetime project as Adam says.
