Adam Ondra ‘Project Hard’ - The World’s First 9c?

Congratulations to Czech climber Adam Ondra on completing his latest challenge 'Project Hard' - and it could be the world's first 9c!

The route is located in Hanshelleren Cave, Flatanger, Norway and incorporates an impressive bat-hang along with steep crack climbing.

If Adam confirms his initial thoughts on the route's difficulty and it is a 9c, it will be the hardest sport climb in the world!
