Easy to forget he nipped up Dawn Wall on his holidays.
This ^

With the likes of Seb Bouin's ticklist this year you can lose sight of quite how good Ondra is.

He's now climbed more than 90 routes 8c and harder o/s, has anyone else even done 10?  Alongside all the hard redpoints around the world, top level bouldering,one of the best best comp climbers for 10 years+, big ,hard multipitch stuff, even managed to get some hard cracks and offwidths done in the states.

If he specialised maybe he could be pretty decent!

It'd be fucking amazing if the first 9c+ in the world was some absolutely savage offwidth in the arse end of nowhere.

Looks like he's going to stop messing around onsighting 9a's and try something that's actually hard again!



The production quality on YouTube videos is pretty good these days.

Looks like he's farting around with a half-decent hand-jam there, pffft.

I swear Ondra is just the best for psyche. He's just got this way of describing the beauty of the rock and the difficulty of a line that is really inspiring.

At the end of this little clip, he says he's coming to England in the next few days.

Anyone got any dry weather they've been saving for.. *ahem* a rainy day?

Fantastic there hasn’t been one of them for days. Hopefully he’ll have chance to to film a contrived head to head competition with Louis Parkinson, a “Pro vs Punter” film with Hannah Morris and “5 mistakes people make climbing slabs” vlog with some other climbing influencer. I’m assuming you were being sarcastic Cheque?

You could be hilariously right in your predictions. I wouldn't be surprised. That said, the world of internet climbing is crying out for Ondra in 'the cellar' so I reckon that's pretty likely.

As correct and depressing as this is, the outdoor climbing programming (i'm trying my hardest not to use the word 'content') on YouTube is in a good place. Wedge, Mellow, Ondra, Stefano, Jakob, Raboutou, Macleod, Bouin, and even Emil Abrahamsson are all putting out good stuff regularly.

It's an amazing time to be alive for climbing CONTENT  ;)  When I started climbing in 1997 I was lucky to find Masters Of Stone films on VHS etc.... Now there's a whole world of endless professional level content at your fingertips for free. Not to mention all the shitty beta vid channels that I'm so keen on.

Bordello is as good a reason as any to make the trip I reckon.

The freely available climbing content on youtube is miles better than for any other niche sport, except possibly chess.

(And even Masters of Stone is available... and oh my god... I tried to re-watch Masters of Stone 3, and apart from the segment with JiBe on Super Plafond and The Specialists my eyes were bleeding)

I was the victim of an intense mancrush on Gerhard Horhager in the Buoux sequence in that film for a remarkably long time. It was a heady mix - the casual campus start to Chouca, the little white shorts, the shiny chestnut Timotei-ed hair tumbling out of the Alice band, the vaguely softcore pr0n introduction (“I am Gerhard from Austria! I am loving the climbing for 14 years now, and for sure I am very good at it!”) He seemed like the ultimate expression, the apotheosis even of the tanned Euro sport wad…

I pretty much wore out my MoS 3VHS back in the 90s. Like you I found it on YouTube and, despite the nostalgia power, couldn't manage it at all!
