Jakob Schubert gelang der perfekte Abschluss der Heim-WM in Innsbruck. Er kürte sich zum ersten Kombinationsweltmeister. Außerdem ist er der erste Österreicher, der in zwei Disziplinen Weltmeister wird.
BD Athlete Adam Ondra is arguably the best rock climber in the world. In the past, he’s also been dedicated to competition climbing—a format he has excelled in, with countless podiums and world championships—but recently his focus has been on the real stone.
In the first episode of Adam in the Rockies, BD Athlete Adam Ondra visits the two Canadian sport crags Planet X and Acephale. After battling dry, glassy skin on his first day, Adam employs some pro tactics to manage his fingertips and heads back to the crag for round two.
On September 3, 2017, Adam Ondra completed Silence in Norway's Flatanger Cave. He graded the route, formerly known as "Project Hard," 9c (5.15d), which would make it the hardest pitch in the world. Watch a teaser for the upcoming film above.
Just days after making the first ever flash of a 5.15a, Adam Ondra did yet another new 5.15b, which he named "Eagle 4". Here is the footage of the send and it's absolutely bonkers. At one point he makes literally a dozen hand and foot moves to just make one move of upward progress. Enjoy!
