Directly after topping out the Dawn Wall, Adam Ondra, continued working out pitch #14 and reports on Instagram. "Great progress on pitch 14, but unfortunately no send. Took a lot of skin to finally figure out the mystery (3rd and last boulder of the pitch), but I finally have a satisfying beta at least. On my last go, with no skin and really tired, I slipped on the first boulder, but continued straight away to the anchor. I am quite confident that next time it should work out. And next time I think it will be on the push. Photo @pavelblazek (check out his insights from the wall on his instagram too, highly recommended)

Black Diamond has got the latest update on Ondra's Dawn Wall challenge. Here is a part of his quote. Adam has spent several days working on two 9as and two 8cs. (c) Pavel Blazek "Complexity and difficulty of the whole climb is just shocking to me. I might have been too optimistic, but I definitely expected it to be easier. Every single pitch is so tricky and hard and yesterday on pitch 16 was the most frustrating day so far on the wall. It revealed the real difficulty of the whole climb and crucial importance of good conditions and skin. Hats off to Tommy and Kevin, who believed that the whole climb was possible before they free climbed. Without having the beta, some of the sections look just impossible. I have the advantage that I know that the climb is possible and that helps me to keep the faith that I might be able to do it as well. I am humbled and impressed by what Tommy and Kevin did!"

Perfecto Mundo Open

Margalef is the best climbing area in Spain that I’ve been to. The limestone is just incredibly varied—with caves, tufas, pockets, and these strange calcium deposits that look like a melted candelabra. The famous Spanish architect Atonin Gaudi reportedly took inspiration for his modernistic structures from what he saw in Margalef.

Chris Sharma has projects all over the place. He works on one for a few weeks, then before getting burned out, he switches it up and tries a different project at another crag. It’s an interesting tactic that bucks the traditional approach of just choosing one god-forsaken rock climb and banging your head against the wall until it’s done. Whether or not there’s something to this style depends on how you want to define success in rock climbing. Is it a parameter of how quickly you tick one box? Or is it actually more about enjoying the projecting process without getting injured, getting burned, and still getting stronger because you’re not just doing the same few moves over and over again?

There might be something to that. … That said, I remember giving Chris a belay on this Perfecto Mundo project at least six years ago. It’s cool to see that he’s going to return to this cliff and try to finish this one off. I’m sure he can do it … It might just be a matter of whether he focuses on this one for a minute … or if another tasty project comes along that diverts his attention elsewhere.

Either way, this is a dope video of Chris that got me psyched to climb. Enjoy it and have a good weekend!

Oriane Bertone, who did her first 8A being 9-year-old, has done her tenth 8A, Evita assis in Ravine du trou. "One of the best lines of Reunion Island. Difficult for small climbers who have to take a swing on a little crimp on the first crux."
