What it takes to climb the world’s first 9c? Movie by Bernardo Giménez shows what preceded the afternoon of September 3, 2017 when Adam Ondra, a professional rock climber and currently one of the best climbers in the world, made a little piece of climbing history when he climbed his project in the spectacular Hanshelleren Cave in Norway. The route, later named Silence, received a new grade of 9c and became the hardest route in the world.

Jerry came into the spotlight in the early 1980s with important ascents such as the 8a Oyster at Pen Tywyn, and The Face in Germany, considered the first 8a+ in history. In 1990 Jerry did the first ascent off Liquid Ambar now graded 8c+, also the world’s first. His autobiography, Jerry Moffatt: Revelations won the Grand Prize at the Banff Mountain Book Festival in 2009.
