Golpe de estado ! Adam Ondra, 2nd ascent: first confirmed 9b in sport climbing history

9 September 1995: Alexander Adler did the 2nd ascent of Action directe.

In the same year, Alex Huber climbed Open air, proposing 9a.

In 2008, Adam Ondra did the 2nd ascent of the route and suggested 9a+, so it can be considered as the first 9a+ in climbing history.

Yesterday, Adam Ondra did the 2nd ascent of Golpe de estado, after Jumbo love, the second 9b proposition from Chris Sharma.

So, Golpe de estado is the first "100 % 9b" for Adam, 17 years old.
At the same time, it's the first time the magical 9b grade is (repeated and) confirmed:

27cragsclimbervoice8a and many others are amazing sites, but sometimes, expecially if you worked a lot to envision, bolt, clean routes or boulders, you want to monetize a little your efforts.

9b can help you in this aim.


As you can see here, in 9b there are many " topo groups ".


You can add a discussion in every "topo group".

In your discussion you can edit and publish your own climbing topoguide, as a "paywall", a "destination page", requiring climbers their payment by credit card or paypal to access and read, even on SMARTPHONES (iphones, android phones, ...)


After having paid, climbers can see, save and print your climbing topoguide.
