Adam Ondra and Silence, the film about climbing into the future

di

The film Silence featuring Adam Ondra and the world’s first 9c freed in autumn 2017 by the 24-year-old Czech climber at Flatanger in Norway. The path that led to the most difficult sports climb in the world documented by Bernardo Giménez, premiered yesterday by the Garda Trentino.



Silence needs no introduction. It is the first climb in the world to have been given the grade 9c. It is therefore - by a long way - the most difficult sport climb route on the planet. And it is also the most important route of all for Adam Ondra who, on 3 September 2017, managed to crown months of attempts at the Flatanger crag in Norway.

The intense, particular and at times even painful journey towards this highly ambitious, apparently impossible goal is documented in Silence, the film directed by photographer and director Bernardo Giménez that premiered last night at Riva del Garda, Italy. For the occasion, Adam Ondra was joined on stage by legendary British climber Jerry Moffatt who during the late 80's and early 90's was widely recognised as one of the best climbers in the world. 

Ondra explained that Silence is such a fundamental milestone in his climbing career that he wanted to share it with everyone, from what he himself defined as the home of climbing, the Garda Trentino region of Northern Italy. Here is Ondra’s climbing manifesto, online for all to see.
