Adam Ondra Updates EpicTV On Dawn Wall Progress

If you haven't heard the news, EpicTV athlete Adam Ondra is in Yosemite Valley working the harder pitches on Tommy Caldwall and Kevin Jorgeson's massively blank 'Dawn Wall' for an eventual ground up attempt.

 

We dropped Adam a line to see how he's progressing:

 

"We are here in the Valley to climb some routes on El Cap and to film with Heinz Zak along the way. The obvious goal is of course Dawn Wall, where I already spent two days."

- Adam practices his offwidth skills

 

"I decided to go in a good style and go ground up, which is a pretty big adventure due to the bold character of the route and lack of trad climbing skills, but so far so good."

-Working Dawn Wall by headtorch

 

"We made to the top of pitch ten and some of the boldest pitches are fixed with ropes, so I can work them better and safer."

- Kevin Jorgeson watches on as Adam gets to grips with big wall jugging

 

"We have more than a month left, so still plenty of time reach my goals." - Adam Ondra
