Here's the intro to the film from Bernartwood:
A new short video featuring Adam Ondra´ s old climbs of three 9a - 9a+ routes, which were initially filmed for the movie The Wizard´s Apprentice, but did not make it into the final version of the movie. So they are really old now, in many aspectst, including the old-school way of filming.
Despite that, two of them are still the hardest routes of Adam´s home climbing area and of the whole Czech Republic. And it would be amazing, if somebody would finally try them... :-)

This video consists of following routes:
Xaxid Hostel 9a/+ - Mišja Peč / Osp / Slovenia
Tanec Kuřátek 9a - Jáchymka cave / Moravia Carst / Czech republic
Perlorodka 9a+ - Lidomorna sector / Holštejn crag / Moravian Cars / Czech Republic
Well, old stuff goes through this video away to create space for for somethig new, hopefully much better. But what?
