Adam Ondra has been on an America trip for several weeks, climbing one classic at the other. Most routes and boulders he tries to climb onsight respectively flash. Often with success, as recently in the case of the famous Boulders Midnight Lightning in the Yosemite Valley. You'll learn more in his first video clip.
