A personal and revealing portrait into the demands of being a professional climber. Features unique behind-the-scenes footage and inspiring shots of one of Hazel's hardest sends: Mind Control (8c) at Oliana.
Patxi Usobiaga takes us through the process of what it was like to climb a route he had attempted 8 years ago in Oliana, Spain when he felt he was at his peak. That was before his life changed and climbing took a backseat.
When Matty Hong sets out to accomplish something, like sending two 5.15a routes in Spain, there's nothing that can stop him from attaining his goal. During his spring trip to Spain, Matty applied himself to no end to make quick work of La Rambla in Siurana and Joe Mama in Oliana.
It's incredible to come back to Oliana year after year and see how this cliff has become an international epicenter for high end sport climbing. It's given me the opportunity to enjoy many special moments with good friends, trying hard routes together and having fun!
Mid October 2016 Chris Sharma managed to send "Joe Mama" (9a+) at Oliana, a route that had challenged him a lot last season. It's been quite a year with so many new experiences.

Nestled in amongst the stunning scenery of Oliana in Catalonia, Spain, Jonathan finds himself getting a bit introspective in the quest to complete one of his hardest projects yet.

In etwas mehr als drei Wochen konnte der adidas Outdoor Athlet im spanischen Oliana und Santa Linya drei 9a, drei 9a+ und eine 9b klettern und wird sich wohl seine selbstgesteckten Ziele neu definieren.
Chris Sharma and Adam Ondra spent two years working together to climb La Dura Dura (5.15c / 9b+), the world's hardest climb. This film tells the story of their unique collaboration and shows Adam's historic first ascent and Chris' second ascent.
Nun ist es also doch geschehen. Das Projekt "La Dura Dura" im spanischen Klettergebiet Oliana musste sich dem massiven Ansturm des Tschechen Adam Ondra ergeben. Adam Ondra und Chris Sharma hatten sich beide schon oft an dieser Linie versucht und nun war es Adam vergönnt diesen neuen 9b+ Meilenstein als Erster am vergangenen Donnerstag abzuhaken.
