Adam Ondra came to Spain with two things in his mind; The world's first 9a+ flash on Seleccion Anal, and a second encounter with Chris Sharma's 9b Stoking The Fire. Adam has been training hard for the last two years, and he's keen to see if his impressive competition form translates to the outdoors. Chris, Sasha DiGiulian, and Edu Marin watch on as this next level climber goes to work. Chris wonders what the future will hold for Adam, suggesting that the almost inconceivable grade of 10a could be within his ability.
Adam Ondra Attempts The World's First 9a+ Flash | Epic Climber Spain, Ep. 2
In the second series of Epic Climber, we invite four of the world's best climbers (Adam Ondra, Chris Sharma, Sasha DiGiulian and Edu Marin) to Spain, where each of them will pick a route to try over the course of the trip. Edu will try his hand at 9a+ Seleccion Anal, with Adam attempting the world's first 9a+ flash on the same, as well as attempting a repeat of Chris' 9b Stoking The Fire. Chris tries to open a brand new route, with Sasha returning to an old project of hers, 8c Digital System.
Everyone's been busy with their lives, but now is the perfect opportunity to catch up with old friends and enjoy a weekend in Spain. We follow the trip through each climbers perspective, exploring what it takes to be one of the world's greatest climbers.
