Adam Ondra in Spain: 8c+ on sight ? No, 9a "1 go". And 9b very close

As "twitted" 3 days ago, in the last few weeks, Adam Ondra climbed Fabela pa la enmienda 9a, 1 go.

Adam has also tried Golpe de Estado, 9b (about 4, 5 days): he was very close to do it, falling several times at the last crux move, but unfortunely he injured his finger so he stopped trying it.

Hey people,
somebody has spread pretty wrong informations. The first pitch of the climb, La Fabela 8c+, wasn't onsight at all, since I had known all the moves from other routes like Open Your Mind (it has the same 8a-ish start), Fabelita and Cachasa, what is the new project I tried two days and has the same finish with Fabela. This finish is also crux for Fabela. Thus I had climbed every single move in this pitch before! After the anchor of Fabela I climbed about ten meters that I had never climbed before (8a maximum) and the end is the same as Enmienda that I have climbed two years ago.
Nevertheless, this route can be onsighted in the future in my opinion, but the crux of the first pitch is quite tough for onsight and not very obvious.
Adam
