Austrian Andreas Matuska made a first repeat of More (9a) in Medveja. The hardest route in Croatian part of Istria was first ascended by Adam Ondra himself back in 2016. It is the extension of Villa Oraj (7b+) and is characterized with far moves on small holds.

For Andi this is his second 9a after succeeding in Sever the wicked hand in Frankenjura last spring. For “More” which in Croatian means “the sea” he needed only three weekends of trying to finally clip the anchor of this 30 meters long beast in surreal landscape. Here is a funny video of Adam Ondra doing the first ascent.

Stay safe folks!
