Is that a Genius on his right foot? Been a while since people have been climbing the no edge shoes. It always surprises me that Sportiva has 35 different shoes but you need to search long to see a pro not use Skwama or Solution (maybe Theory indoors)

Low volume Katana lace I think?

I thought that was great. Ondra is such good value. As I non-Czech speaker I feel I'm missing out on the full range of expletives when he slips off after the crux!

He started with Geniuses, then tried Solutions, and finally a Solution on his left and a (women's) Katana lace-up on his right.

Yeah, I thought the English subtitles seemed to be understating it a bit. I tried switching youtube to Czech but they still seemed to be somewhat incomplete

Was generally impressed not only by the difficulty and the runout, but also by the style - that sort of vertical ultra precision on microholds not the most fashionable thing these days

I watched half, and the main thing I learned is that when Ondra climbs in the Verdon he pulls on the goutte d'eau with his thumbs unless the moves are really hard. That is just too bisarre not to try the next time!

I though that too! I'm off there in May - will report back if it works for mere mortals  :-\
