Climbing video: Adam Ondra attempting Stoking the Fire at Santa Linya in Spain
A video documenting Adam Ondra and his attempts on Stoking the Fire, a 9b sports climb freed by Chris Sharma at Santa Linya in Spain.
Straight up: this video doesn’t show Adam Ondra’s repeat, but his attempts on Stoking the Fire, one the countless gems freed by Chris Sharma (this particular one in 2013). The Czech climber sent the route in February this year and has described it as "probably the best 9b in Catalunya."
It's worth noting that given its difficulties, Stoking the Fire is one of the hardest sport climbs in the world, and that only three routes have been given the 9b+ grade: Change (2012) at Hanshelleren in Norway, La Dura Dura (2013) at Oliana in Spain and Vasil Vasil (2013) Sloop, Czech Republic.
