Adam Ondra dal včera v Saint Leger du Ventoux ve Francii cestu Super Crackinette za 9a+ flash, což by měl být první přelez této obtížnosti na 1. pokus v historii lezení.
Adam zatím přelezl na flash dvě cesty v obtížnosti 9a, Chromosome Y ve Švýcarsku v roce 2014 a Southern Smoke Direct Start v USA v roce 2012. Ta druhá byla původně psaná na 9a+, ale Adam ji shodil na 9a.
Nyní Adam klasu cesty Super Crackinette 9a+ po přelezu potvrdil v postu, který zveřejnil na Instagramu:
Francouzský lezecký web Fanatic Climbing k tomu podle očitých svědků napsal, že Adam tuto cestu vylezl zjevně velmi snadno, kroky mu radil Quentin Chastagnier, který ji vynýtoval. Nejdříve ji lezl Quentin, Adam ho jistil a sledoval, jak mu nacvakává expresky.
Vytrvalostní darda bez jasného klíčového místa Super Crackinette 9a+ je variantou s přímým začátkem originální cesty Crackinette za 8b+. Jako první Super Crackinette 9a+ loni přelezl Němec Alex Megos a trvalo mu to tři dny nacvičování.
Výkon z říše snů! Podle Megose nejtěžší cesta v oblasti, kterou nacvičoval 3dny a myslí, že to je 9a+.

"I’ve been thinking about trying to flash a 9a+ for quite a long time but the problem is to find the perfect route because there are not so many 9a+ routes in the world. And at the same time there are not so many 9a+ routes that I had not tried before and that are good routes to flash - meaning that are not super complicated and super tricky.
I saw this route two years ago and it seemed like a perfect candidate to me so I had it in my mind and waited for the right moment. This year we went for a long trip to St. Leger here in France and I thought this was the time.
Nevertheless, I had a lot of doubts whether I should or shouldn’t go for it. I wasn’t very confident because I thought that the route is so resistant, and I did so much climbing without any rest, and I was wondering if I was really fit enough to do it. And there were moments during this trip when I was sure that I would not try it because I felt like it would be a waste. Because, you know, - on a flash you have only one go. Once you try it, it’s not possible to try the same route again as it would always be a second go.
In the end, I decided to call Bernardo, he came here to film, so at that point I could not really back away from it. I just had to give it a try. I took two rest days which definitely helped. As I was warming up, I started to feel more confident that it could actually work out.
Then I started climbing according to the perfect beta of Quentin Chastagnier who gave me all the beta. He bolted the route so it was very very important. The first half of the route, I was just flying up the route. It was like I was feeling cosmically strong and that boosted my confidence a lot. Only towards the second half of the route were there a couple of moments where I felt like I was losing my confidence a bit because there were two pockets where my fingers were just too fat to dig deeper but I still somehow made it and then I had just enough energy to do the last hard move on the very top.
Getting to the anchor was really emotional and I see this 9a+ definitely as one of the best accomplishments that I have ever done. This was really hard especially mentally due to the reasons I explained before - there are very few routes that are good candidates to be flashed and you always have only one go." —Adam Ondra
Ústní popis od někoho, kdo cestu zná, zvlášť když má 30m mi nikdy nepomůže. Jak vám?
Spíš mi pomůže, když vidím ji někoho lézt/zkoušet. Když mi třeba někdo řekne, že crux je chyt a ten vem na spoďák, tak tam dolezu, chci to chytit jako že na spoďák a... wtf. ten chyt je tak hnusnej, že spadnu nebo to vykřečím jiným způsobem :). Je to maso.
Jo a Adam je prostě neskutečnej.
