1.6. 2010 - FIRST INFO
Since the spring of 2009 I have been collecting material on currently the best rock climber in the world - Adam Ondra. What leads me to call him the best will be explained before the premier of the film. Now, let me tell you a little about the last 12 months, which has been the most successful period of Adam's life.
Having spent a whole year of filming together, travelling tens of thousands of kilometres into various rock climbing destinations, never ending days and weeks of waiting for the perfect weather conditions, ideal fitness or a bit of luck, I now know that the time of collecting material is at an end. The second stage is ahead, which is editing almost one hundred hours of shots and moments into a film. This stage is even more difficult than the actual filming in the verticals. If everything goes well, it will take about five months. We will keep you up to date on the progress of the film through articles, interviews and video clips.
I managed to shoot a lot of interesting moments of Adam’s life in that year. On the rocks as well as away from them. I got to know him not only as a phenomenal climber, but mainly as a person. For me personally, this is the more interesting part of this story! It is because I do not know many such strong people as this young man Adam Ondra.
I think that in that year I have partially come to understand the art of his climbing success and realised the hard work (Adam's as well as those closest to him) behind it all. This is exactly the reason why top-class editing of the film is a significantly harder part of the film process and at the same time a big challenge. It is because the positive motivating potential of our project is huge. Which is something that’s damn well needed nowadays....
Here, you will find a list of the more interesting climbs and events, to give you a better picture of the actual climbing content of the film. The most outstanding one is connected with a really inspiring story full of twists and amazing conclusions. Fantastic, I couldn't have wished for a better script.

ADAM ONDRA (* 5. 2. 1993 Brno)
Adam Ondra is an exceedingly talented Czech climber, who at the age of 12 placed himself among the world top ten climbers in difficulty and at 16 won the World Cup in this discipline.
He has been climbing since 1999 and he can already boast about climbing grade 8c OS and 9a+ PP and in 2010 even 9b. In 2009, when he was able to compete against adults for the first time, he came second in his very first World Championship in China and overall he won the World Cup in climbing the difficulty discipline. Also, he is a long-term leader of the unofficial world chart of rock climbers on the 8a.nu server. His climbing of hard routes is distinguished by effortlessness and significantly low number of attempts, which he needs for the climb. Apart from climbing he is currently a student at the Grammar School of Matyas Lerch in Brno and he is also a keen snowboarder. He speaks fluent English and German.
