Commenting on Ondra's achievements on the recent Kalymnos festival, organiser Aris Theodoropoulos said:
"The pure soul of the Festival was the phenomenal Adam Ondra. Despite his 16 years of age, he has already taken sport climbing to a new dimension.

Adam seems to have this effect even on the specialists, as Dani Andrada and Chris Sharma speechlessly watched him breeze through the 9a's in Spain last spring, prompting Chris to declare that he now feels “like an amateur!”.
