Adam Ondra sends „Orca“ (XI / 9a) at the Tyrolean crag „Schleierwasserfall“. One of the oldest unrepeated 9a-Routes. Alex Hubers first ascent was in 2001.

„The 20 meters long „Orca“ (XI / 9a) at the Tyrolean crag „Schleierwasserfall“ was the last unrepeated of my first ascents in sportclimbing. 19 years after my first ascent in 2001 it was now @adam.ondra who realized the second ascent. After the second ascents of „Weiße Rose“ and „Open Air“ it was again the master himself who became the first to repeat one of my hardest sport climbs.“
