A 9a+/b a 9a and a couple of 8c's onsight by Ondra
Vicious Circle was a project he bolted last year. It starts left of Za staro kolo in majhnega psa and traverses to the right and joins Sanjski par after six moves or so. Adam described the route as an 8c+ to a bad rest and another 8c+ to the top. At 9a+/b, it's the hardest route in Slovenia.

Adam Ondra and his climb of the hardest route in Mišja Peč, Slovenia. Adam extended the classical route Sanski Par by a few more moves, and he graded the extension alone as 8c+. It is a couple of very difficult steps in the roof, almost without rest.
