Premier 9a d’Israël par Adam Ondra – First 9a in Israel by Adam Ondra

  • 04/12/2017

Malgré les multiples interdictions d’accès, Adam Ondra a pu se rendre à Nazer Cave, la falaise la plus dure d’Israël en compagnie du local Ofer Blutrich. Adam a enchaîné Climb Free, 9a ce qui en fait l’ascension de plus haut niveau jamais réalisée en Israël. La voie présente une section teigneuse typée bloc en fin de toit. Adam a également flashé Yala Factor, 8c+ dont Ofer était proche de réaliser la première ascension pendant ce même séjour.

Despite multiple access ban issues, Adam Ondra was able to visit Nazer Cave, Israel’s hardest cliff with local climber Ofer Blutrich. Adam was able to do the first ascent of Climb Free, 9a making it the hardest climb in Israel. The route is in a roof with a hard 3D-climbing boulder problem at the end of a roof. Adam also flashed Yala Factor, 8c+ which Ofer was close to sending during this trip.

Israeli trip was a blast! Besides sightseeing and tasting one of the best food I have ever had, we climbed a lot in Israeli's hardest crag Nezer Cave. This cave is normally closed for climbing between November and March, for no obvious reason. We were lucky enough to get special permit for our trip thanks to @oferblutrich. This picture is Israeli’s first 9a called Climb Free that I made the first ascent of. Israeli climbing is very small and it is facing very little comprehension from the rangers of natural reserves and local authorities. Hopefully, this trip will contribute to cooperation and opening more crags from the untapped potential this country has to offer. So it will be possible to “climb free” in Israel. @mytendon #climbisrael
