Adam Ondra: This Is My Absolute Nemesis Route

Adam Ondra writes: “Victimas Perez is a 9a [5.14d] that might have required the most effort ever for me. It is my absolute nemesis route. It was my side-project when I was trying Perfecto Mundo, so basically I tried it when the weather was too bad for Perfecto Mundo but not too bad to climb at all. It is an ultimate kind of route, pretty basic two-finger-pocket pulling in the steep overhang, with a good dose of power endurance and a final crux that kept spitting me off.” Watch Ondra provide commentary for his time on the route in the video above.
