08 Apr Adam Ondra 9a+ first ascent
Adam Ondra was back in Cornalba, a crag near Bergamo – Italy and has done in 5 attempts the FA of Goldrake, a route bolted ten years ago by Bruno "Camos" Tassi.
According to Ondra, the route is more difficult than Action Directe, and could be graded 9a+.
Goldrake is located right to the well known Jedi and has a boulder graded by Adam 7C+.
"Cornalba is the crag of the future" said the young Czeck talent after his performance.
At Cornalba he has done the first redpoint of Vento nei Capelli 8c+/9a, Les Syndacalistes 8c+ at second try, Miss Lily 8a+ onsight and Peter Pan onsight.
