Ascent 1 of Iron Curtain by Adam Ondra

Date of Ascent:

August 03, 2013

Suggested Grade:




Adam Ondra frees new 9b at Flatanger in Norway
9b standard for me? I wish! No, 9b is still a really hard route, certainly not something I would do in an afternoon without too much effort. To tell the truth with Iron Curtain I thought the process would be quite easy and quick. I felt super strong, on the way to Flatanger I had just fired a 9a project called Purgatory at Hell (an area close to Trondheim) on my 2nd go, and the first day on Iron Curtain felt good. But how wrong I was!
