Petrohradske padani - is it a competition or just an opportunity to meet people of the same kind? We would like each participant to answer this question on his/her own. If the unique spirit of this event comes from every attending climber - not just from our minds - we couldn't be more happy.
Passion, true passion, means still loving what you do even when it gets painful, even when it pushes you to the edge of your ability. And that passion is at the core of Adam Ondra's relationship with climbing and although he's now heading into the Kotelna Gym for his third training session of the day, for the seventh day in a row, he doesn't lack for motivation.
Athletes like Adam Ondra aren't simply born, they're made. And as we're about to discover, the making takes time, dedication and more than a dash of masochism. Adam has dedicated himself to pushing the sport of climbing further than it ever has been before.
Innerhalb weniger Tage konnte Felix Neumärker zwei Routen im 9ten Franzosengrad für sich verbuchen. Die Touren stammen jeweils von Ausnahmekletterern ihrer jeweiligen Generation: Adam Ondra und Wolfgang Güllich.
Die Organisatoren möchten alle Boulderfans zur bereits 14. Auflage des RAFIKI PETROHRADSKÉ PADÁNÍ 2015 einladen. Dabei handelt es sich um eines der grössten Bouldertreffen in Europa mit vielen neuen Bouldern für jedes Kletterniveau.
Von allen Sandsteinklettergebieten in Böhmen ist Adrspach wohl das Wildeste. Hier sind noch Abenteuerlust und Teamgeist gefragt. Die tschechische Sicherung und Schwierigkeitsbewertung ist sicherlich nicht jedermanns Sache und die gute alte Risstechnik bei fast allen Wegen zwingend erforderlich.
Well, as you already noticed we take bouldering really serious, and when I say serious I mean the consumption of cheap beer, awesome steaks, living in a hotel room, gambling cards for a slap and drinking schnaps out of a bottle.
Adam Ondra climbs two of the world's hardest boulder problems, suggesting V16 / 8C+ for both. First, Terranova, an extremely funky traverse at his home area near Brno, Czech Republic. Then Gioia, a problem in Varazze, Italy put up by Christian Core in 2008 and only repeated by Adam.
A new short video featuring Adam Ondra´ s old climbs of three 9a - 9a+ routes, which were initially filmed for the movie The Wizard´s Apprentice, but did not make it into the final version of the movie. So they are really old now, in many aspecst, including the old-school way of filming.
