BD athlete Adam Ondra went on something of a tear the first four months of 2011—in case you were living in a dumpster and didn't hear the news. 8c+ onsights, 9b redpoints—sometimes both in the same day. (Check out the videos here and here.)
After his northern Spain rampage, he headed down to southern Spain with his father to have a go at Chilam Balam, a wildly overhanging, 80-plus meter long, traversing route that was famously graded 9b+ by its first ascentionist, Bernabe Fernandez. It had never seen a repeat—until Adam showed up and dispatched the stunning line in a handful of tries (check out the rowdy runouts when he starts skipping clips!). Next up was an undone project to the right: a tufa and micro-crimp line that would prove to be more demanding than its well-known neighbor. Adam eventually redpointed the line, naming it La Planta de Shiva and grading it 9b. Two weeks... two of the hardest sport climbs in the world dispatched.
When Adam told us he was heading down to try Chilam Balam and La Planta de Shiva we dispatched Bernardo Gimenez to document the action, sure that Adam would—again—pull off a stunning performance. Below is Bernardo amazing video that captures both 9b ascents. Epic, epic EPIC! If this doesn't get you psyched, go back to your dumpster.
Between some training sessions I managed to go outside looking for some rock for three separate on March 2011. This is The Game Extension, 8a on El Castillo de Bayuela, Toledo, Spain. That day was great, beside the fact I've been long time without touching real rock, we where some friends there climbing a lot, pushing all together, laughing out loud... and at the end of the day we witnessed Nacho's masterpice sending. I gotta go back there!!!!!!!!
Edit from me and my freind Henrik Hult´s trip to Albarracin in November. We stayed and climbed on the amazing sandstone-boulders during 11 days and this film shows some of what I did. Special thanks to Henrik for support and most of all for working with the camera, shooting photos and film making this movie what it is.
EDIT: CLIMBING IN SECTOR SOL IS PROHIBITED SINCE 30/11 2010. THE BOULDERS FROM THIS AREA SHOWN IN THE VIDEO WAS CLIMBED AND FILMED BEFORE THAT DATE. PLEASE RESPECT THE ACCESS-RULES AND STICK TO CLIMBING IN THE AREAS WHERE CLIMBING IS ALLOWED.
