Age of Ondra

47 mins


Adam Ondra is the best climber in the world, a mantle he has earned by doing the unthinkable. This wunderkind from the Czech Republic is almost freakish in his domination of the sport’s disciplines — bouldering, sport climbing, big-wall climbing and competition climbing. Along with making the second free ascent of the Dawn Wall, he became the youngest climber to send a 5.14D at the age of 13, and won both the Bouldering World Championship and Lead Championship in the same year. But what raised the most eyebrows is that Ondra established not one, but two new grades in the world of sport climbing — a feat almost unfathomable in its difficulty. Where do you even go from there? This feature film follows Ondra as he chases that question down, giving viewers a glimpse into the mind of an athlete who burns with a crazy, obsessive and cerebral drive that pushes him to envision, and accomplish, the impossible.
