Adam Ondra and the second ascent of Dawn Wall!!

On the top of El Cap!

22 November 2016

After eight days of climbing, Adam Ondra did the second ascent of Dawn Wall, the great route opened by Tommy Caldwell and Kevin Jorgeson at the end of 2014. After two weeks working, Adam started with Pavel Blazek for the final push last November, 14th and the 21th comunicated toh ave completed the ascent. In total, he spent 6 days climbing and 2 of rest. Critic was the fourth with eight attempts with no success on the pitch number 14! Another problems was the temperature, sometimes too hot and the feet, on the route very streesed. Recently Adam said that was an insane idea to try the route but probably he was just kidding!
Another incredible performance for this incredible climber. What will be able to do in the future?
