Again, we receive a message from Adam Ondra. He succeeded on Friday the first ascent of La Chatagne (9a +) in St. Leger.
If you have the speed of Adam Ondra viewed one could think that 9a's are not that difficult at all. And yes, there are now certainly more athletes than already who climb in the ninth degree of difficulty. The difference to Adam: He climbs such routes within a short time. Before his stay in St. Leger, he stopped in Charmey (Switzerland) and climbed a 9a + (LACRUX reported). Now in St. Leger he manages the first ascent of La Castagne, a 9a +, drilled by Quentin Chastagnier. We are curious which messages will reach us in the coming days.
