Jack's got an update from Adam Ondra, who has made the first ascent of a project bolted last year by Lars Audun Nornes in Hanshelleren, Flatanger.
Lars Audun is one of these guys who works hard finding, cleaning and bolting lines that he often knows he will never be able to climb himself. He also says Adam made the first ascent of an old project at the limestone crag Hell. Apparently the 9a/+ route has a very hard crux weighing in around 8B right at the start and then hard, but probably slightly easier, climbing leads to the top. These are some of the hardest routes in the world.
The video of The Meltdown 9a slab climbed by James McHaffie has been released -- looks like incredibly hard climbing.
