Back in early 2013 Adam Ondra succeeded on the first ascent of the super route La Dura Dura (9b+) at Oliana, Spain (Original UKC News). The route is considered to be the hardest sport climb on the planet.
The route had initially been tried by Chris Sharma, and together the two top climbers battled with this huge sweep of limestone, with Ondra finally grabbing the first ascent, and in the eyes of many, also the crown of 'best climber in the world'. The baton had been passed from Sharma to Ondra, and after so much effort and no success, would Sharma regain his psyche and also clip the chains on this ultimate climb?
Yes he would. And now, released on the internet in all its glory, here's the full video from the guys at BigUpProductions.
"Chris Sharma and Adam Ondra spent two years working together to climb La Dura Dura (9b+), the world's hardest climb. This film tells the story of their unique collaboration and shows Adam's historic first ascent and Chris' second ascent.
"For the full backstory on Chris, Adam, and the route, check out the original film, "La Dura Dura" available on the REEL ROCK 7 DVD and Download."
