AGE OF ONDRA
2018, USA, 46min
Directors: Josh Lowell, Zachary Barr & Peter Mortimer
Every so often an athlete comes along who redefines their sport. Adam Ondra, the 25-year-old Czech crusher, is exploring a new realm of human potential in climbing. Late last year, he established a benchmark for the sport; a 5.15d in Norway he dubbed Silence (as in, drop the mic). On the heels of this ascent, we follow Adam from his home in the Czech Republic, across Europe to North America, as he innovates new training methods, establishes upper echelon first ascents, and attempts to be the first person to flash 5.15a (9a+), to send a 5.15a (9a+) route in the first try.
