Adam Ondra clocks airtime on the unrepeated Chris Sharma route, Neanderthal (5.15b), in Santa Linya, Spain.

Ondra came close to sending last week, but he fell out of the no-hands rest above the dyno move.

“Despite the conditions, (wet tufa, 20+ degrees [Celsius], high humidity), he was giving it one last try, so I set up the ropes (as I ‘ve done so many
times before on this route) to document the action,” writes Madskillz Media,
who captured the whipper footage. “Unfortunately, the conditions were a bit too shitty even for Adam, and the route remains unrepeated for now.”

Happy Friday and climb safe this weekend!
