Adam Ondra climbs Brutal Rider, at 8C+ the hardest boulder problem in Czechia
The video of Adam Ondra making his May 2020 first ascent of Brutal Rider, the boulder problem at Sloup in the Czech Republic graded 8C+.
What do you do if your project is drier than ever before, but a small stream suddenly flows below it? Well if you’re Adam Ondra, the answer is obvious: build a small walkway, place your crash pads on top and go for the send. This is how the Brutal Rider came to life earlier this month and at 8C+ the Brutus + Ghost Rider linkup in the Sloup cave is now the hardest problem in the country. And - incidentally - one of the hardest in the world.
