Age of Adam Ondra - the current limit of sport climbing
The film Age of Ondra, directed by Sender Films. A fascinating portrait of Czech climber Adam Ondra as he struggles with Silence, the world’s first 9c, with Crackinette, ie the first-ever 9a+ flash, and his attempt to repeat a 9b in a single day.
Age of Ondra is now online. This gripping film follows Adam Ondra as he tries to break down the conventional barriers of sport climbing. The first part retraces the efforts that lead to Silence, the first 9c in the world freed in 2017 at Flatanger in Norway. The second part documents the Czech climber desperately gunning for the world’s first 9a+ flash, which he finally achieves on Super Crackinette at Saint-Léger du Ventoux in France in 2018. The third part examines his attempt to climb a 9b in just one day, namely Fight Club at Ravens Crag freed by Alexander Megos in 2016. And it also documents his attempts to make the first ascent of nigh-impossible slab he then calls Disbelief.
