Adam Ondra #77: Sandstone / Extremely Scary Bolting

Bolting topic continues as we move on from limestone in the southeast of Czechia into the northwest of Czechia – onto the infamous sandstone! Here, the bolting ethics are tough as you need to bolt ground up, rappelling from the top is forbidden. Check out the archive footage from 2011 while we open ground up together with Ondra Beneš the hardest route on Czech sandstone – To tu ještě nebylo (This hasn’t been here, yet) 9a. Get ready for both scary and funny falls! Good entertainment.

    This is the original video of bolting it: https://www.dailymotion.com/video/xmgq8x It’s REALLY funny if you speak czech, but funny nonetheless.

    There is other amazing footage in this clip from a really good docie (comes with subtitles) of a f*@king fit czech ballie (subtitles present, worth watching for everyone, especially those who think they are hardcore): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JZvhIlzV8Ec

    Labak is an amazing place to climb, there is very little footage online, but do yourself a favor and watch some classics

    This is almost as bad as the bolting at bloc 11!
