My favourite takeaway through the entire series is that Ondra hates speed climbing.

And modern style bouldering by the sounds of it! (Or at least its too hard on his body to warrant the injury risk.)

Very interesting discussion I thought. Magnus does ask some good questions.

Ye very true, Interesting to hear how it effects his body. Can totally understand.

I think Magnus is 10 years ahead of Ondra in terms of comps so its great to hear the pair of them talking about different experiences.

that's the best interview I've seen in a very long time.. good questions and good answers.

Brno looks to be totally sandbagged :-)

Er…. did anyone notice Ondra’s dodgy belaying?! I wouldn’t let him hold my rope 😆
