Ondra. Not much he can't do when he goes beast mode. What a boss.

Like his peers before him, he represents a very exciting possibility. Ondra extends the definition of what is considered possible. As in...

"Did you hear someone just freed the Dawn Wall in 8 days"

"Not possible. You've been lied to."

"It was Ondra."

"Oh, Okay...Yeah, that makes sense."

Ya, Adam is probably the best in the world right now, depending on how you judge it.

I didn't quite understand the process. Did he free climb each day (covering each pitch) and then use ropes to rappel back down to his portaledge? And once a pitch or section has been free-climbed, it can be skipped the next day?
