Terranova at Holstejn, Lidomorna, near Brno was put up by Adam two years ago, whereas Gioia, at Varazze, was opened by Christian Core three years earlier. Originally given 8C, it has...

Superb, particularly the Gioia one. Ondra's bouldering and Core's pieces to camera is a great combination that can't fail.

In reply to UKC News: Do you think he'll ever get on the hard trad circuit? I'd love to see him go on a world rampage. This question must of been asked before...

In reply to andrewmcleod: I wonder if such a large crowd of spectators gathers everywhere that Ondra climbs.

Excellent, heart-warming film and yes Core comes across superbly well.

In reply to UKC News: the close ups of the holds and explanation of the moves was great. I think this is the first video I've seen where you get a real idea of just how ridiculously hard these climbs are..

In reply to Donnie: I know what you mean, you do start to question how it's actually possible to climb that. Although I still don't understand how anybody can do the yellow problems down at Boulders. :)

Excellent vid, Core seems like the perfect host! Ondra's screams remind me of a couple who used to live next door to me.

In reply to Donnie: It's pretty amazing when you think that Core started trying it without even knowing if it was possible.

In reply to UKC News: Christian Core is an amazing human being. I had the honour of spending 2 weeks with him and his family. Beautiful people! Gioia looks even more ridiculous than I ever could have realised!
The close up on the one crimp on Gioia looked like it was about 7mm and you have to match that on such a severe overhang! Truly incredible! Watching Adam scream his nuts off to do it is impressive but knowing that Chris, with his larger frame, had the vision and ability to push through the crux is probably proof that the theory of gravity is just a theory and can be reversed. Chris has obviously worked this out and probably also knows how the pyramids were built. I also think the guy needs to have a statue erected somewhere.

He's compelling, not unlike Christopher Walken.
