22 Jul Adam Ondra completes his big project in Canada doing Disbelief, 9b
Posted at 00:00h in Bouldering News
Mission accomplished naturally. Adam Ondra came to the conclusion of his project in Acephale, Canada, on which he had been banging his head for quite a long time. Adam has thus freed this new crazy route on a fearfully compact wall and with a technical climb beyond measure.
“Disbelief” 5.15b (9b), probably upper end of the grade. Acephale, Canmore, Canada.
It was a crazy day. I almost wanted to give up. After two tries, when I got to the crux move (which is actually a foot move) totally fresh, I would slip off for like 15th time. No light at the end of the tunnel…despite the fact I stuck the move 10 days ago once, only to fall off 2 moves higher. On my 3rd try of the day, I somehow did not slip and did not fall. I cannot think many other routes where I climbed so close to my limit.”
