Ondra on <em>La Dura Dura</em> (5.15c). Photo by <a target=Bernardo Gimenez. ” />Adam Ondra made the first ascents of two 5.15a’s in Norway last weekend: Kangaroo’s Limb and Hell Racer. He has now sent 28 routes 5.15a or harder, 19 of which were first ascents, according to 8a.nu.

Ondra described both routes on his 8a.nu page:

“Another season in this beautiful cave is over for me. Many projects left behind. Left exit version of Kangaroo’s dyno project, the cheater’s one. Dyno specialists, come and try it! I could stick the dyno as a single move, but not very close to link,” he said of Kangaroo’s Limb.

The ascent marks the end of a month-long trip to Flatanger during which he also established Move (5.15b+) and Iron Curtain (5.15b).

On his way back to the Czech Republic, Ondra stopped by Hell, Norway to make the first ascent of Hell Racer (5.15a).

“4th day on, last day in Norway, excellent timing and good way to say goodbye. Took four days in total. Quite serious bouldering into sustained finish,” he said of the route on 8a.nu.
