Adam Ondra, the Chaxi Raxi Oliana video

17.05.2011 by Planetmountain

Video of Adam Ondra making the first ascent of Chaxi Raxi 9b at Oliana, Spain.

A few weeks ago we recommended a video shot by Bernardo Gimenez of Adam Ondra on-sighting an 8c+, Mind Control at Oliana. Exactly a week after that ascent the Czech climber was caught on film by the Spanish photographer once again as he freed what he describes as being "probably my hardest route I have ever done."

The route in question is of course Chaxi Raxi and had been bolted by American Chris Sharma, who had consented to Ondra attempting the line. In our March interview immediately after the first ascent Ondra had talked to us about an 8B+ boulder section followed by 9a+ climbing with some good rests... check it out for yourself!
