Ondra Repeats Sharma 5.14d


8/8/11 - Adam Ondra got busy with the rock in Margalef, Spain, last week. The 18-year-old finished Chris Sharma's Era Bella (5.14d) on his second attempt, saying he had to "battle his way up."

He also climbed Gancho Perfecto (5.14d), which he said felt hard: "The finish is the killer... Could possibly be 5.15a."

Of course, the trip wouldn't be complete without a pair of onsights: Flash Over and Altzol (both 5.14a). He previously climbed Natural Present (5.14c) and Mr. Teroldigo (5.14b).

Ondra recently competed in the Arco World Championships, where he placed second in bouldering and third in lead climbing.
