ondra-changeI believe Adam Ondra has earned the right to be featured on the Bouldering Portal as he is a beast on whatever he does and considering the bottom of this route is an 8B+ boulder problem it should be well worth your time. Enjoy!

Last summer, Black Diamond athlete Adam Ondra made a highly productive trip to Hanshalleren, a massive granite cave outside the small town of Flatanger, Norway. Adam not only made short work of the cave’s established hard routes (including onsighting two routes graded 5.14c/8c+), he made the first ascent of Thor’s Hammer (5.15a/9a+) and bolted a futuristic project out the steepest section of the cave. On October 4, Adam managed to link this 55-meter-long beast, establishing Change, the world’s first route graded 5.15c/9b+. Along with his recent first ascent of La Dura Dura in Oliana, Spain, Change stands as one of, if not the hardest route in the world.
